World War II based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
For the preteen and teen who enjoys reading about war, this series will be a welcome addition to a library. Each of the books includes background information about the causes of the war and the cultural divide that caused politics to clash with the common folk; this title has information about the German and Japanese desire for expansion in the decades prior to the official beginning of the war. A timeline, map, list of key players, and glossary are included. As with other titles in this series, additional maps placed throughout the book, instead of only two at the end of the book, would help in understanding how troop movements affected the outcome of the war, particularly with the large number of countries involved. A solid purchase for beginning researchers.
