WORLD WAR TWO: Under the Shadow of the Swastika
Major events of WWII become dramatized in this riveting graphic depiction of officers, soldiers, journalists, and ordinary families caught up in the whirlwind of conflict. Beginning with the rise of Adolf Hitler and Nazism in the 1930s and ending in May 1945 with VE Day, the story traces significant battles, triumphs, and defeats, with specific focus on the action in Europe and Africa.
“This colorful, energetic primer on the most destructive of wars stresses mass-murderous Nazi tyranny and the primarily civilian resistance to it. . . Indian artist Sharma powerfully brutalizes mainstream comics style by thickening and tapering lines and by drawing figures in rapid motion. . . [and] fills the images more with emotion than gore, which is in keeping with the publisher s educative mission. An excellent special-focus supplement to WWII studies.”
