Product Details


“This colorful, energetic primer on the most destructive of wars stresses mass-murderous Nazi tyranny and the primarily civilian resistance to it. . . Indian artist Sharma powerfully “brutalizes” mainstream comics style by thickening and tapering lines and by drawing figures in rapid motion. . . [and] fills the images more with emotion than gore, which is in keeping with the publisher’s educative mission. An excellent special-focus supplement to WWII studies.” — Booklist

World War Two: Under the Shadow of the Swastika “succeeds in being remarkably competent, complete and really quite readable. . . a brilliant book for a school reference work. . . a salient, conclusive lesson to all about this War and of course all war as a result. . . I have to admire this book for how much detail and info it did manage to dump on me, and the clarity and educational level of everything here is really quite superb – one of the better lessons to be had, then.” — John Lloyd, The Bookbag
