Publisher Description:

Campfire’s World War II: Against The Rising Sun focuses on the war in the East, through the eyes of the servicemen and civilians on both sides of the conflict. From the invasion of Manchuria by Japan in 1937, right through to the dropping of the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, we witness the end of the British Empire, the rise and fall of Japan and destruction the likes of which the world must never know again.

While authoritative texts on World War Two often tend to focus disproportionately on the European theater of war, the Pacific theater was no less dramatic, with its roots stretching back to the early 1930s. This book tells the history of World War Two in the Pacific theater, told from many perspectives.

Category Description for History Graphic Novel Series:

Campfire History publishing brings history alive through these graphic novels. Filled with a surplus of fun facts, information, and dialog students will find these graphic novels engaging all while learning about these time eras. As the subject or focus of these novels covers particularly torrid times in the world’s history, perusing these books before students dig into them is highly encouraged. The illustrations alone can elevate the maturity level that is appropriate for some of these books. What is so wonderful about these history readers is that they are not ordinary history textbooks that just spit-out dates, locations, or facts. Each volume interweaves an engaging narrative through the presentation of a specific historical period or event. While written and illustrated by different individuals, these graphic novels do work very well as a series. Books range from 87-115 pages, pb. ~Rebecca
