A great overview of World War II looking at all areas of the world that were involved. Since this is a non-fiction book there are not any defined characters, plot or setting. This DK book does an excellent job at looking at not only the U.S. perspective, but also the Japanese, Soviet, German,

Italian and British aspects of the war. The short paragraphs on each page help to introduce the topic, however, the pictures and the captions contain the most information and have are very interesting. This is an excellent book for a public library, and would be good for elementary aged children, as well as some middle school students.
