How exactly did we win the war? In a stunningly visual syyle, this illustrated book chronicles World War II from the early rise of Germany's dictator, to the landing of troops in Normandy and the eventual victory over evil. More than seventy-five years ago, the greatest conflict in the history of mankind came to an end. Winning World War II shook the foundations of modern civilization, leaving millions upon millions dead and wounded and once great cities in ruins. Out of the horror, however, a new world was born. It’s no wonder the War is still being depicted in movies, books and documentaries. With this book, readers will look back at the cataclysm that shaped who we are, from the rise of Adolf Hitler and Japanese militarism to the great battles and dramatic turning points upon which the fate of humanity hung. We profile the inimitable leaders who guided their nations to glory and ruin — Hitler, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill, Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin, and America’s president, Franklin Roosevelt — and examine the deadly weapons that turned the tide of the fighting and launched the atomic age. And we look back at the sacrifices that Americans at home made to win the war.

The word ‘prepper’ seems to have burst onto the scene within the last 10 years, and has increasingly become associated with “fringe” extremists. They have been labeled by some as “domestic terrorists.” But is prepping a new phenomenon? Or is it a manifestation of a growing collective psyche that has learned, from traumatic events throughout our history, that preparedness is critical to human survival? For new preppers who think the worst is yet to come, this book offers a walk through history that shows the worst has been here before. For those who wonder why so many people are concerned about being prepared, this book will show that when the worst has made an appearance, those who weathered it best were those who were prepared. For those already familiar with history’s worst who think, “THAT will never happen again!”—this book offers a reminder of the Wall Street adage: “Past performance is no guarantee of future results.” For those who wonder what a prepper is, this book offers a look at what they used to be—and what they are today.
