Associated Press staffer Moody ( 444 Days: The American Hostage Story ) here presents a competent compact history of WW II accompanied by more than 100 photographs from the AP archives. His portrayal is vivid, covering the fall of France and Battle of Britain in 1940, the deadly seesaw battles in North Africa, Italy and Eastern Europe, the Allied D-Day landings in Normandy and the Battle of the Bulge in 1944, and the massive drive of Soviet forces to Berlin that helped bring the final victory in May 1945. Separate chapters treat the Holocaust, U-boat warfare in the North Atlantic and the war in the air. (Dec.)
