Synopsis

World War II Children by Sallie Purkis

True-life experiences of four children during World War II, beautifully presented as historical biographies. Through hours of research, Sallie Purkis has uncovered these original histories and retells them for the first time with historical photographs and large colour illustrations. In this book, we find out about Hella who was forced to flee England when the Nazis invaded her country, about Molly who watched the German army march into Guernsey and about John who had a bomb land in his garden in London. The war even affected Gloria in Jamaica, on the other side of the world.
