World War II lasted six years. That’s 2,194 days.
What happened in those six years? In this new “diary,” author Richard Binder takes a radical new approach to telling the story of the worst conflict humanity has ever experienced. Instead of trying to cover everything, he relates the happenings of just 366 days, the length of a single year. Choosing events great and small from the beginning of the war to its bitter end, he gives you a fascinating and sometimes shocking look at things you know from your high-school history and things you may never have heard of.
