Witness the 2,175 tumultuous, tragic, and triumphant days that shook the world. Born to freedom, and believing in freedom, Americans are willing to fight to maintain freedom ... we would rather die on our feet than live on our knees. -- Franklin D. Roosevelt Roosevelt's powerful sentiments have come to symbolize the attitude of all those who lived through World War II and the enormous sacrifices they made. World War II Day by Day tells the story of all these people -- it is not simply an account of the heroes and their bravery but also of the villains and their victims as well as the ordinary, stoical citizens back home who worked so hard to aid the war effort. Learn about the earth-shattering events as they happened, day by day, week by week -- as if you were reading a contemporary newspaper. Discover the secret war waged by the spymasters and codebreakers; find out about the partisans and resistance fighters, the traitors and collaborators. Follow the conflict as it unfolds in detailed timelines and find out who were the key figures of the Allied and Axis powers in a comprehensive, illustrated Who's Who. Explore the developments in literature, painting, popular music, and movies such as Gone With the Wind, Casablanca, and Mrs. Miniver that were so vital in boosting morale and providing much-needed forms of escape. Relive the atmosphere of wartime propaganda and rationing with genuine posters, cartoons, and advertisements of the time.
