Book description 

Experience the history, politics, and tragedy of World War II as never before seen through the original, often first-hand daily reportage of the New York Times. The Times’s complete coverage of the war is now available for the first time in this unique package.

Hundreds of the most riveting articles from the archives of the New York Times — including first-hand accounts of major events and little-known anecdotes — have been selected for inclusion in The New York Times Complete World War II.

The book covers the biggest battles of the war from the Battle of the Bulge to the Battle of Iwo Jima, as well as moving stories from the home front and profiles of noted leaders and heroes such as Winston Churchill and George Patton. 

Editor Richard Overy guides readers through the articles putting the events originally reported on into historical context. The DVD givers readers access to more day-by-day coverage of World War II in the New York Times — from the invasion of Poland to the VJ day. 

Beautifully designed and illustrated with hundreds of maps and historical photographs.
