Description
This book offers readers a dramatic visual chronicle of our times.

These are unforgettable moments in history-five Marines raising the US flag in

Iwo Jima in 1945, Babe Ruth's final salute to Yankee stadium in 1949,

Lee Harvey Oswald wincing in pain as he is shot in 1964, President Ronald Reagan

being tackled into his limousine after the 1982 assassination attempt. Captured by

the lenses of top photographers, these 98 Pulitzer Prize winning photographs-combined with photo-timelines-paint a dramatic and memorable montage of each year, from World War II to the last days of the 20th Century.

Etched with emotion, fury and passion, each photograph transports the reader back in time to cry with the victims or cheer with the heroes. A detailed narrative along with the timeline that pictures and notes the most significant events of each year fills in the historical background, the photographer's thoughts, the events leading up to the captured moment as well as the aperture opening and shutter speed.

All photographs are rendered in duotone or full color, producing

clear and crisp images.
