"Not just for children! Bought two for a Mort Kunstler lover I know!"

"Just right for grade school aged kids. Very good illustrations."

World War II: 1939-1945 takes readers on a vivid journey through the most important events of the conflict, with action-packed illustrations by Mort Künstler—one of America's foremost historial painters—and an inquiry-based text by historian James I.

A timeline and short biographies of notable figures, such as Winston Churchill and Franklin Delano Roosevelt, provide excellent supplements to each chapter.

From high-action combat to soldiers reflecting post-battle, each scene captures a historically accurate, visually rich portrait of the war. No other living historical artist is as celebrated as Künstler, and his work continues to attract history lovers of all ages.

Mort Künstler is an American painter and the world's most collected Civil War Artist.

James I. Robertson, Jr. is a nationally recognized American historian and the author of many books, including the ALA award winning biography Stonewall Jackson.
