"The Second World War Experience: Blitzkrieg", published in association with the Imperial War Museum, describes the slow spiraling to war: from the forging of peace after the First World War to the wars of Italy, China and Japan in the 1930s. It then goes on to document the dramatic events of 1938-41: from the Munich Crisis in 1938 to the defeat of France, from the retreat at Dunkirk to the sinking of the Bismarck. Rare items of memorabilia sourced from around the world bring the era and events to life as never before. Each volume also includes an audio CD of veterans' first-hand accounts. Memorabilia includes: Order No 1 - the German order to invade Poland which led to the British declaration of war against Germany; The fake passport used by Sub-Lieutenant Heinz Kummer of the Graf Spee to flee back to Germany following the Battle of the River Plate; and, Montgomery's personal diary charting the events of the evacuation from Dunkirk.
