Synopsis

This new title from the 50 Things You Should Know About series is packed full of infographics, illustrations, maps, and color photographs from the period. Not only identifying major political and military figures from both sides of the conflict with the 'Who's Who' pages, this title also documents the significance of medical workers, protesters, and civilians caught in the crossfire. Photos of memorabilia, such as patches, pins, and bracelets, add a personal aspect to the war.
