The Second World War was a seminal event in world history. The story of its battles and key events is a familiar one, but The Second World War in 100 Objects offers a unique perspective on this global phenomenon by tracing its history through its objects, such as iconic items like the British Spitfire, the George Cross and Adolf Hitler's personal revolver, to personal objects which tell the poignant stories of individuals and official documents, maps and orders. Fully illustrated, each entry will be accompanied by approximately 500 words of text which will put the item in context and highlight its significance.
