The War Against Germany: The U.S. Army's Official Pictorial Record



The War Against Germany is the U.S. Army's official pictorial record of the Normandy, Northern France, Rhineland, Ardennes-Alsace, and Central Europe campaigns of World War II. It is an impressive compilation of hundreds of the best pictures taken by U.S. armed forces photographers, specially selected and captioned by a distinguished team of Army historians. In compelling detail, these photos show the soldiers' living conditions, their training methods, their weapons and those of their opponents, the terrain over which they fought, and the support they received from the U.S. Army Air Forces and the U.S. Navy. Also included are rare German combat photographs that give a good picture of what it was like on the other side of the lines. The War Against Germany covers every aspect of the American build-up in the United Kingdom, the air offensive in Europe, and the fierce combat that ranged across Europe until the fall of the Third Reich.
