History of the Second World War. 8 volumes in publisher's branded binders

£175.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

Purnell in association with the Imperial War Museum -68, 1966. 128 parts in 8 vols.,

Profusely illustrated in colour and monochrome throughout; all original parts (less wrappers as intended ) housed in publisher's branded black rexine binders blocked in gilt, a very good, bright, clean set. Purnell's mammoth endeavour is arguably the crowning achievement of the 'partwork' fashion of the late 60s. Produced in collaboration with the Imperial War Museum, edited by Barrie Pitt and written by a host of eminent historians, scholars and veterans, the series is equally fortunate in having Liddell-Hart as editor-in-chief. Produced in 'magazine' format, the work as a whole makes full use of its size and space to create a lucid, vivid and valuable account of the conflict. The number, choice and quality of the photographs, illustrations and diagrams are worthy of special mention. The work was intended originally in six volumes (ending with the Japanese surrender), but as the series neared its conclusion it was decided to extend it to eight volumes to include the consequences of the conflict such as the birth of the nuclear era, the foundation of the UN and so on.
