Read full description of the books:
What makes this book unique is color photos. Most photos you see of World War II are black and white. Toward the end of the war in Europe, Hollywood director George Stevens was asked by Gen. Eishenhower to put together a flim team to travel with the allied armies during the landings in France and follow their campaign in Europe. Stevens did so, recoring the war on color film. It sat for nearly 40 years until it was "rediscovered" by his son, George Jr. The text is provided by one of Britain's leading war historians.
No real surprises in the photos, but once again, a reminder of how really horrible a world war is.
