Put together by the team behind BBC History Magazine, The Second World War Story app for iPad explores the key events and personalities of the largest and most harrowing conflict in human history.
As well as multimedia guides to D-Day, the Battle of Britain, the Atom Bomb, the Holocaust, and many other topics, the app also includes in-depth articles by internationally-renowned historians; historic video footage; an interactive Second World War timeline; and audio interviews by historical experts.
A special collector's edition of BBC History Magazine is now on sale, giving readers the lowdown on the global conflict that raged between 1914 and 1918.
The issue covers the key battles and personalities, as well as information on what it was like to live and fight through the First World War.
Historians such as Gary Sheffield, Peter Caddick-Adams, Peter Hart and Fiona Reid examine a host of topics – from why the war began and life in the trenches, to the American impact, the crucial final year of the conflict, and the Armistice.
