Riassunto: This Memorial Day will mark the high point of the celebration of the 60th anniversary of World War II, with the dedication of the National World War II Memorial on the Mall in Washington, D.C. The Associated Press is participating in this event with an exhibition at Washington's Union Station and with the publication of this book, the definitive presentation of the AP's most significant and influential photographs relation to World War II.
Almost 200 reporters and photographers fanned out around the globe to cover World War II for the Associated Press. Five lost their lives. Seven others won Pulitzer Prizes, including Joe Rosenthal, who clambered up Iwo Jima's Mount Suribachi to take the flag-raising photo that became the emblem of American victory and one of the most famous pictures of all time. The AP's photographic coverage of World War II was as comprehensive as any compiled by one organization, and is unrivalled in its coverage of U.S. Soldiers. The photographs transmitted to American newspapers by the AP during the war rival in importance Matthew Brady's coverage of the Civil War, and they have never been published before in one photographic album. Arranged sequentially, these images tell the history of the war, from Generals Eisenhower and Patton planning operations in Europe, to the D-Day landings, to the celebration of V-E Day in Times Square.
Sinossi: Presents a collection of photographs taken by reporters and photographers who covered World War II for the Associated Press, arranged sequentially to relate the history of the war from early planning operations to V-E Day celebrations.
