Product Description

From the combatants’ battlefield decisions to their operational and strategic plans, this book is the definitive military history of WWII. Created by the United States Military Academy to prepare America’s future military leaders, The West Point History of World II is an impressive combination of state-of-the-art scholarship and analysis with spectacular graphics and design.

The two volume set presents a balanced narrative of the war from its origins through its culmination. It examines the crucial elements of the conflict, including the political context, operational and strategic planning, campaigns and major battles, strategic use of sea and air power, war economies, organising the “home front,” and demobilisation.

Hundreds of tactical maps, graphs, charts, and diagrams, most specifically created for this set, make it easy to follow even complicated events. Fully captioned vintage photographs and artefacts, many selected from U.S. Army archives, illuminate the conditions of the war.

Authoritative, compelling, and brilliantly designed, The West Point History of World War II is an essential resource that will fascinate both students and World War II experts. With premium leather binding, hubbed spines accented with true 22ct gold, and gilded page ends, the luxurious two-volume set is the state-of-the-art in fine bookmaking.

Each book measures 8 ½” x 11”.
