WORLD WAR TWO: Against the Rising Sun
Experience WWII through the eyes of servicemen and civilians as it unfolded in the East. From Japan’s invasion of Manchuria in 1937 to the dropping of the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, dramatic graphics recount the end of the British Empire, the rise and fall of Japan, and the unprecedented destruction that ended the war in Asia.
“A well-considered and balanced account of the horrors of WW2 in the East as Japan and the Allied Forces fought for control of territory. From the startlingly effective embossed cover depicting a kamikaze air attack to the evocative photo journalistic style inside the reader is engaged from the start.”
