About the Book

The World Aflame: A New History of War and Revolution: 1914-1945

A bestselling historian and a brilliant artist have combined their talents to create a stunning visual history of global war and revolution from 1914 to 1945.

Dan Jones and Marina Amaral tell the epic, harrowing, and world-changing story --- in narrative form with colorized images --- of global conflict from the assassination of the Archduke Franz Ferdinand to the obliteration of Hiroshima by the first atom bomb.

THE WORLD AFLAME embraces not only the total conflagrations of 1914-1918 and 1939-1945 and the tensions, ideologies and economic forces that set them in motion, but also the revolutions in Russia; civil wars in Ireland and Spain; American interventions in Latin America, colonial wars in Morocco, Ethiopia, and Palestine; and events on the domestic ‘fronts’ of the belligerent nations.

A fusion of amazing pictures and well-chosen and informative words,THE WORLD AFLAME offers a moving --- and often terrifying --- perspective on the bloodiest century in human history.
