World War II: Saving the Reality uniquely captures the experience of this monumental conflict. Along with compelling narrative and never-before-published photographs, you'll hold replicas of nearly one hundred wartime artifacts: letters from the front, autographed portraits of commanding generals, urgent communiqués, Nazi propaganda, historic newspapers, Top Secret instructions, patriotic posters, and more. These pieces of history, from the archives of the famous Museum of World War II, are tucked and folded into envelopes and pockets within the massive, boxed collector's book. Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Doris Kearns Goodwin calls it "remarkable" and praises its "emotional journey back in time." Phil Reed OBE, a director of the Imperial War Museum in London, says, "Kenneth Rendell's Museum of World War II simply has no equal. The museum can at last be widely enjoyed through this volume." By Kenneth W. Rendell. Foreword by Doris Kearns Goodwin. 144 pages, with more than 80 replicas; coffee-table size; full color; hardcover in library slipcase. Retail $49.95.
