Picture of 1942: On The Offensive: The Second World War in Photographs.
1942 was the turning point of the war. The Japanese were soundly defeated at Midway, losing four irreplaceable aircraft carriers. The build up of American troops and material in preparation for the invasion of Europe and the rout of the Germans and Italians in North Africa saw the allies on the attack for the first time and all this is captured in photographs many of which were previously unpublished.

Description

This is a unique look at the fourth year of the Second World War, through the medium of old photographs. Although it was not quite the beginning of the end for the Germans, many see 1942 as the turning point of the war. This book, the fourth in a series covering the Second World War year by year, covers the war in Russia, where Hitler's forces were being held back; the battle at El Alamein; and the war in the Pacific. Other key events, such as the Battle of Midway and the slaughter which took place in the Warsaw ghetto, are covered in detail.
