"Anyone interested in World War II who loves picture postcards will find this book fascinating. This remarkable album of the war will appeal to historians, collectors and anyone, young or old, who enjoys a good read and a touch of nostalgia. With over 800 illustrations, informative captions and colourful text, I"ll Be Seeing You is both a history book and a rare collection of pictorial propaganda. The illustrations are of picture postcards, most of which were published between 1919 and 1946-contemporary images meant to promote national ideas, yet unwittingly recording details of everyday life. Reflected in the cards are the art styles and humour of different nations; political satire; romantic impressions and cameos of history. Scribbled messages from husband and wife blend military and social comment to produce a compelling continuous story; personalities, kings and dictators inspire patriotism or ridicule; women are called to uniform or factory, and cute kids tell jokes to sustain morale. Love plays its part with the arrival in Europe of the "Yanks"-the "friendly invasion"-and the battles at sea, in the air, the bombs, the camps and finally, liberation, complete this fascinating book."
