Description

The Second World War transformed the world not just America and the opposing belligerent nations. Eighty years later the postal authorities of the world continue to commemorate the conflict – because the effects are still being felt. This book looks at how the conflict is remembered and its aftermath. It is essentially an annotated picture book - the challenge to the reader is to determine the message the stamp is telling.


Author

Christopher B. Yardley:
Christopher Yardley is a life-long stamp collector with an interest in military history. What is the stamp designer wanting to say – has perception of the event changed with time? Is the image a ‘mirror’, reflecting what we already know or is it a ‘lens’ – requiring we think further?
