Headlines from The New York Times: World War II Knowledge Cards

Every variation on extreme human behavior could be seen between 1939 and 1945: the Nazi wolf savaged Europe, while Tojo's Japan sought to found an empire on bloodstained ground. The eventual Allied victory over the Axis called for commensurate extremes of determination, sacrifice, and judicious ferocity. People an ocean away from the front lines wept and exalted over the uncertainties, losses, and successes of their cause.

No news source brought the daily progress of World War II to Americans like The New York Times. This deck of Knowledge Cards addresses 48 major wartime events in quiz form: each card features a partial headline (e.g., "Chamberlain Resigns, _______ Premier"). The answer and an excerpt from the attending article appear on the opposite side. These cards offer fascinating contemporary coverage of a twentieth-century cataclysm, presented with the Times's characteristic accuracy and intelligence.

3¼ x 4 in.

Perfect

Everything was perfect. My husband is a Veteran and enjoyed this gift very much. Thank you.

Enjoyed the book I always like reading real history.
One of the cups was completely destroyed, sent you an email when received got no reply, not happy on this
Got no geek patch or black tears.
What I did get intact (book & 1 cup) proved to be quite expensive…………

Loved it so much we bought it twice

My parents brought this shirt back as a souvenir for my 4 year old daughter. She wore it constantly until the day she discovered scissors 😭. She cut it up and was so proud of herself until I freaked out, then we both cried… I would usually take this opportunity to teach a lesson about scissors and say “sorry, you’re SOL.” But this gift was so loved and I felt she learned her lesson when she realized she had ruined it rather than improving it.

Great quality sticker

I bought it to put with my photo book and keepsakes from my trip to visit this incredible memorial.

Great coin

Just a beautiful tribute to those who served at Pearl Harbor on that fateful December 7th.
