"Timeline World War 2 stands out with features that put history in context....it is absolutely gorgeous...Features like a scrollable map, updated audio for newsreel footage, and day-by-day layout of information...create an app that really stands apart."

TUAW App Review (The Apple Unofficial Weblog)
"It's a groundbreaking application.....It's beautiful, it's expansive, and it's a great demonstration of what the iPad can do at its best."

Note: The app contains a large amount of content, and is around 750MB in size, so may take some time to download. Video content within the app requires a wi-fi connection to view, and some of the films are in their original (silent) form.
