World War II was one of the most complex events in history, the consequences of which are still being felt today. Believing that one of the best ways to learn history is through biography, Famous Men of the Second World War tells the story of the war through the lives of 31 men, investigating prominent individuals such as George Patton and Winston Churchill, as well as lesser-known individuals, scubas Carl Mannerheim and Chiang Kai-shek. The contribution of women to the war effort is also emphasized. Famous Men of the Second World War covers D-Day, the Battle of the Bulge and other high-profile events, as well as topics often overlooked in World War II texts, giving insight into the important roles of China, Russia's Winter War with Finland, the rescue of thousands of Hungarian Jews from the Holocaust and the epic clash between Germany and the Soviet Union on the Eastern Front. Review questions are included for each chapter to supplement home or classroom study.
