The events of 1939–1945 had such a dramatic impact on the world that it is easy to forget that Allied victory was far from certain, especially in the early part of the war when both the Nazis in Europe and the Japanese in the Pacific were sweeping all before them.

Campaigns of World War II: Day-by-Day chronicles the war as it happened, focusing on key battles and events that act as signposts in the slow change of fortunes of either side. Divided into two sections, one on each major theatre, the book describes such famous events as the attack on Pearl Harbor, the battle of Stalingrad, the Normandy landings, the fall of Berlin, and the struggle for Iwo Jima. Linking each famous event is an in-depth chronology detailing other events happening elsewhere, building into a snapshot of the war at that point.

Highly illustrated with full colour maps and both colour and black-and-white action photographs, Campaigns of World War II: Day-by-Day is a handy reference volume on the progress of the war in Europe and the Pacific from its beginning in Poland to the end at Nagasaki.
