Category Description for Usborne Introduction to the World Wars:

These are by far the most interesting World War reference books I have ever seen! Each of the fabulous 8¾" x 11" hardcover books is positively brimming with fascinating facts about the people, places, weapons, aircraft and artillery of World Wars I and II. Bold, dramatic photographs splashed about the pages in brilliant graphic layouts will keep you absolutely riveted from cover to cover. Brightly colored maps sprinkled throughout the books provide geological perspective as you study various battles and events. The maps are color-coded consistently throughout the books, making it possible to tell at a glance which areas belonged to the Central Powers in WWI and Axis Powers in WWII, which belonged to the Allied Powers, and which remained neutral. Helpful Internet links appear at frequent intervals, inviting you to visit an Usborne website hosting links to web pages providing source document transcriptions, video, virtual tours, and many other resources offering additional information on the featured subject. The Introduction to WW I book is 148 pgs, and while Introduction to WW II is out of print, the combined Volume has 255 pgs and is almost a page-for-page compilation of the separate volumes. ~ Rachel P.

Our core curriculum (Tapestry of Grace) uses this as our core history text for a few weeks. The bargain book made it the best deal I could find!

This combined volume from Usborne Books is an excellent resource for middle to high school aged students Providing cost savings by binding two books together Usborne has produced an excellent overview of both World Wars In typical Usborne style every page is lavishly illustrated and in this case using mostly period photographs The causes and course of each war are thoroughly discussed so that a student will gain a solid understanding of the history of the wars and the affect they had on the world we now live in I particularly appreciate the effort put into giving a complete overview of the first World War since it is often overlooked in favor of World War II history Producing a joint history of the wars is an excellent idea since many of the roots of the second war come from the first as this book makes clear This book also contains internet links for further information on every double page spread The links are easy to use and frequently updated by Usborne so there is no fear of purchasing a product only to have the internet resources be gone when your child needs them Combined with the text the links make "The World Wars" an almost limitless source of information for students of 20th century world history
