World War II in numbers : an infographic guide to the conflict, its conduct, and its casualties / Peter Doyle.

Publication | Library Call Number: D743 .D66 2013

"A different way to understand the magnitude of World War II." Countless books exist about the Second World War and in those can be found all of the statistics to be had: numbers killed, bombs dropped, battles won and lost, ad infinitum. But to see these numbers as infographics gives the reader a fresh perspective on the war. "World War II in Numbers" uses color graphics and succinct text to tell the key stories of the battles that engulfed the globe and affected virtually everyone alive during the 1940s. To see the war set out in numbers tells the story with a new certainty: how the Polish Home Army carried out more than 700,000 acts of sabotage, the large number of Japanese lost in the Pacific War, how Allied tanks stood up to the armor-piercing power of the Panzerfaust, the damage the Kamikaze inflicted on Allied ships during the Okinawa Campaign, the number of unexploded bombs reported on the island of Malta, that in 1944 alone 914,637 tons of bombs were dropped on German cities, by how much the Allied forces outnumbered the Germans in Normandy, how the ten costliest land battles in WWII compare with those of WWI.
