My son gave me a copy of the book "World War II 365 days" which covers a lot of the political and economic factors affecting the war and includes beaucoup pictures, propaganda posters and art. At least two pages are devoted to each date in a year, so 365 X 2 = at least 730 pages. Author Margaret E. Wagner.
It also says "From the Library of Congress", so I am not sure if that library sponsored the book in some way or helped get it published. A triangular logo on the spine has "Abrams" over it - likely the publisher.
I found the book fascinating because it covered a lot of the political landscape outside Europe and North America. It helped a lot in filling in, for example, the pressures on the British in India and Burma that made it difficult for them to stop the Japanese earlier.
And did you know that on May 14, 1940 :
Peruvian police finally end two days of anti-Japanese riots. U.S. intelligence agents in the country report: "The fear of ... anti-Japanese riots will in all likelihood prove a great deterrent to sabotage attempts on the part of the Japanese community".
It suggests to me that U.S. agents might have provoked the riots as a message to U.S. based Japanese people.
So, not an attempt to cover the military battles per se, but to provide context to what happened during the war.
