Language: English . Brand New Book. ABC-CLIO s World War II: A Student Encyclopedia captures the monumental sweep of the Big One with accessible scholarship, a student-friendly, image-rich design, and a variety of tools specifically crafted for the novice researcher. For teachers and curriculum specialists, it is a thoroughly contemporary and authoritative work with everything they need to enrich their syllabi and meet state and national standards. Ranging from the conflict s historic origins to VJ Day and beyond, it brings all aspects of the war vividly to life--its origins in the rubble of World War I, its inevitable outbreak, its succession of tumultuous battles and unforgettable personalities. Students will understand what the war meant to the leaders, the soldiers, and everyday families on home fronts around the world. Featured essays look at Pearl Harbor, the Holocaust, the atomic bomb, and other crucial events, as well as fascinating topics such as signals intelligence and the role of women in war. A separate primary source volume provides essential source material for homework, test preparation or special projects. With a wealth of new information and new ideas about the war s causes, course, and consequences, World War II will be the first place students turn for the who, what, when, where, and--more importantly--the why, behind this historic conflict.
