Michael Freeman's valuable guide to the history of Nazi Germany. Dealing with all aspects of the Nazi regime, it is far more than just an atlas: the integration of the maps themselves with charts and other visually-displayed data, and an extensive and authoritative commentary, makes this a book to read as well as to refer to.
Presents the history of the Holocaust in specific geographic details, with some 230 color maps of regions, countries, cities and towns, and concentration camps. The accompanying text explains the physical facts of the deportations, concentration camps, and the extermination of the victims of the Nazi state in Europe, from Germany and the western countries to Poland and other areas in the east.
The harrowing history of the Nazi attempt to annihilate the Jews of Europe during the Second World War is illustrated in this series of 320 highly detailed maps. The horror of the times is further revealed by shocking photographs.
This fine work shows that general reference works and atlases need not be simplistic. Detailed and complete, this atlas covers WWII in all theaters and campaigns. Should be in any library. Annotation(c) 2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
