It's time to learn about one of the most important events in history and defend democracy and freedom


Gathered inside are 16 stories about WWII. From the sandy beaches of Normandy and Okinawa to the ruined cities of Berlin and Hiroshima, discover why the world fell into a massive conflict that forever changed the world. Understand why Americans today proudly call them the Greatest Generation.


Consult with President Franklin Roosevelt as he watched Nazi Germany march relentlessly across Europe and Imperial Japan push through the Pacific. Plan the Allied strategy with General Dwight Eisenhower and Admiral Chester Nimitz. Land on the beaches of Tarawa and Anzio along with American troops. Huddle in frozen foxholes with the defenders of Bastogne. And liberate the concentration camps that sent millions under Adolf Hitler's Nazi regime to their deaths.


By peeling back the pages of this book, you'll discover answers for:


  • Why did Imperial Japan attack the US fleet in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii?
  • How did WWII spark the modern civil rights movement for racial equality?
  • Why did WWII lead to the invention of duct tape and synthetic rubber?
  • What caused the US to decide to drop two nuclear bombs on Japan?
  • Why were so many American women nicknamed "Rosie" during WWII?


And so much more


The war fought so long ago may seem distant, but the legacy of the conflict continues to shape our lives. Memories of WWII influence diplomacy and global tensions today - from Ukraine to Taiwan.


And the international institutions born out of WWII, such as the United Nations and World Bank, remain vital in maintaining political and economic stability around the world.


Curl up with this book and journey back to when the Allies stormed through machine gun fire and artillery shells in order to build our world today.


It's time to answer their call and join them in their struggle
