Filled with amazing historic photographs, maps, and short, powerful chapters, Great Battles for Boys captures the attention of even reluctant readers. History leaps off the page through the blood, sweat, and sacrifice of men at war. Learn how these conflicts shaped the world, and why "Freedom isn't free."

In this episode, the story opens with Hitler's rise to power in 1930s Germany, followed by his devastating invasion of Poland that launched World War II. In chronological order, the crucial battles storm across Europe and into North Africa, including:

  • The Battle of Britain: Germany's attempt to invade the United Kingdom
  • The Winter War: a tiny tribe of Finish soldiers defeats Stalin's massive Red Army
  • The Battle of Kursk: World's largest tank battle smolders on the Eastern front
  • North Africa: German General Rommel's Afrika Korps almost crush the Allies
  • Invasion of Sicily: British spies fool the Nazis
  • D-Day: the heroic Normandy invasion
  • Battle of the Bulge: Hitler invades Belgium and stuns novice American troops

"I strongly recommend this book, particularly to young readers who aren't provided this kind of insight in standard texts." -- Randolph Carter Harrison, retired officer Army Special Forces, former head of media relations, The Boeing Company, and author of West from Yesterday.
