WORLD WAR II: A COMPLETE PHOTOGRAPHIC HISTORY presents a simultaneous documentary view of every theatre of the war, from the steppes of Russia to the jungles of Malaysia and the Solomons; from the freezing cold of the northernmost fjords to the scorching sands of the Libyan desert; from the bunkers of the West Wall to the boundless oceans. With more than 2,500 photographs and maps and an unprecedented collection of primary source texts, this monumental volume bears witness from September 1, 1939, to September 2, 1945.

This book is a very good photo study of WWII if one ignores the captions. Sadly the book goes from 4 to 3 stars for me for many many captions being wrong and many more being too light on information. Some photos are used more than once as well. ( )
