Anden verdenskrig i billeder

af Richard Holmes

I denne enestående bog fortælles på gribende vis historien om den krig, der har præget generationer verden over i mere end 60 år. En krig, der blev udkæmpet på alle kontinenter og alle have, og som flyttede grænser verden over. Imperial War Museum i London har for første gang i museets historie været med til at skabe en bog, der som denne gengiver 500 af de bedste fotografier fra museets enorme fotoarkiver; hvoraf mange aldrig har været offentliggjort. Mange af bogens emner, f.eks. D-dag og Pearl Harbor, er i dag en del af vores fælles bevidsthed, men bogen giver også et unikt indtryk af, sider af krigen, som i mange tilfælde ikke før har været dokumenteret. Det hele kommenteret med Richard Holmes enestående tekst; der sætter fotografierne i det rette perspektiv.
