The Lovereading4Kids comment
Michael Foreman makes history such fun and this book in particular is so inspirational. It tells the story of life after World War Two as soldiers return to begin life back home with families who have been without them for so long and of course some families whose loved ones did not return. Reading this book will make the reader realise how lucky we all are and interspersed with the story you’ll find out a little of how it affected the author’s family as well through photographs and captions throughout.
Other titles in this series of books set in, around and after the two world wars of the 20th century by Michael Foreman include War Game, War Boy, Farm Boy and Billy the Kid.
After the War Was Over by Michael Foreman
This is a special new edition of Michael Foreman's classic sequel to the award-winning War Boy. Life for a young boy is different after the Second World War ends - the country is moving forward again and he is finding his place in the world. Once the victory parades are over and the barbed wire and unexploded bombs are cleared, his attention is drawn to football, music, girls and art. Michael Foreman's personal story is the story of life in Britain in the '40s and '50s - from soldiers returning from war to jazz clubs and 'teddy boys' - a time when everything changes. Like War Boy, After the War Was Over is a lively and innovative combination of story and factual information with Foreman's trademark beautiful illustrations.
