The Second World War A-Z

The Second World War A-Z is a succinct alphabetical guide to the massive collection of World War II-related materials housed in Imperial War Museums (IWM), bringing clarity to the enormity of that infamous historical era.
From "Appeasement" to "Zero Hour," from "Churchill" to the "Women’s Auxiliary Air Force," this book provides an extensive yet bite-sized overview of the conflict. It explores key wartime personalities, battles, military tactics, and the role that posters, songs, and other propaganda played during the war.
This publication marks the seventieth anniversary of VE Day and the end of World War II, making it a timely and fascinating read, and an excellent companion to the recently published The First World War A-Z. Written by the expert staff of IWM and sprinkled with stories and firsthand accounts found in IWM's collections, The Second World War A-Z is an indispensable guide to a time period that shaped the world we live in today.
