The Los Angeles Times newspaper book uses reprinted coverage from this dominant American publication to create a thrilling reportage history of the key events throughout the 1940s.
As expected, World War II dominates the headlines throughout the book, with detailed coverage of the turbulent conflict that occurred and the involvement of the US. Early headlines outline details of the Nazi's invasion of Europe, Roosevelt's compelling 'Arsenal of Democracy' speech in 1940, coverage of the US relationship with Japan and the bombing of Pearl Harbour. 1945 sees a turning point, as the war comes to an end and President Roosevelt sadly dies.
Whilst the aftermath of war continues to appear in the headlines, there is also a wealth of alternative coverage such as the Fort Lauderdale hurricane in 1947, Gandhi's death in 1948 and Truman's recognition of the new state of Israel.
