The Story of the Second World War by Katharine Savage, 1st Scholastic paperback printing, T534, Club edition, 1964, 314 pages.
DESCRIPTION: “WWII- How did it happen? Why did it happen? In this book you will watch Hitler rise to power in a bitter and defeated Germany- see Austria, Czecholavakia, Poland, fall under the goose-stepping boot of the German army…hear the first eerie air raid siren as Prime Minister Chamberlain announces that Britain and France are at war…feel America’s shock and anger as Japanese bombers pour flaming death down onto Pearl Harbor. You will follow the war across deserts, through jungles, over mountains, in blazing skies, on every ocean. You will meet the great leaders who planned for victory…and the men and women who fought for it.” (from the back cover)
