Synopsis

Published in conjunction with the groundbreaking exhibition 'WWII & NYC at the New-York Historical Society', this fascinating book captures the little-told but epic story of New York in the years 1939 - 1945, and the war's impact on the metropolis. This captivating story unfolds in four different sections. The first covers the years 1933-41 and recreates the noisy contest of opinions in New York over whether the U. S. should involve itself in the war, and introduces the scientists at Columbia University who conducted top-secret research to develop the atom bomb. 1942-45 saw a city mobilising for war, as industries converted to wartime production and huge terminals surrounding the port shipped men and supplies to Europe. The reader then follows New Yorkers to war with stories of individuals who served. The concluding section captures scenes of war's end with the surrender of Germany and Japan. Fully illustrated and cleverly designed, this captivating book will be a must read for all those interested in New York City as well as the history of World War II.
