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)


About vintagescholastics

I love these old Scholastics! I am a bookseller, writer, and dog-lover; live at the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains of New York with my computer-programmer husband. We love motor-cycle riding, renovating our old camp on Lake Desolation, gardening, and researching our genealogy. The purpose of this blog is to highlight those beloved old books from the Scholastic Book fairs from 1950 - 1979. This will serve as a catalogue of the books, with their identifying numbers, a plot summary, and a photo of the cover; with a searchable index. I want to give all of the writers and illustrator's bios so they get credit (many were writers in the summer while on vacation from their regular schoolteaching jobs.; some are lesser known efforts by very famous people; and some are reprinted classics.) Hopefully, their fans will be able to identify favorite titles with snipets of remembered information. We will always be adding new ones, and welcome your submissions
