Synopsis

The Secound World War, Fighting for Freedom by Peter Chrisp

The Story of the Second World War for Children shows the impact of the war on the lives of the people who lived through it, from children evacuated to the countryside, to bombed-out cities and civilians working in munitions' factories, and the soldiers fighting on land, sea and air. The book also looks at how the war led to major advances in technology, medicine and weaponry. Feature boxes throughout the book highlight subjects of particular interest to children, such as life inside a U-boat and tips for a jungle fighter. Maps and cross-section artworks of the insides of famous tanks, aircraft, U-boats, aircraft carriers add extra detail and fascination for children.
