The Lovereading4Kids comment
This is a great all round introduction to The Blitz, the name given to the raids over Britain by the German Luftwaffe during the Second World War. The book is structured around the real-life experiences of pilots - both British and German - and of civilians who experienced the terrors and aftermath of the Blitz attacks. Each story is peppered with interesting facts including details about the aircraft used, the scientific developments such as radar which brought such benefits to the Allied Forces and the political strategy of the time. With fascinating accounts from London firemen, evacuees sent into the countryside for their own safety and tales of courage from fighter pilots this book illustrates the very real impact and experience of war.
This is one of three books included in a special boxset from Usborne called True Stories of the Second World War published in association with the Imperial War Museum to mark the 70th Anniversary of D-Day.
You may also be interested in the companion books of this series, D-Day and The Second World War.
