The Greatest Generation is called that for a reason: they fought in the Second World War, changing the future and map of the entire planet. This book from the New York Times retraces the deadly global conflict, from its 1939 headline alerting America to the attack of Germany on Poland to Japan's surrender. Through images and riveting text pulled straight from the paper comes journalistic coverage of milestones in human history like the attack on Pearl Harbor, the storming of Iwo Jima, and the bombing of Hiroshima. The pages have the appearance of being torn from the New York Times, complete with a light gray tint, adding a vintage aesthetic to the book's contents.
