The Lovereading4Kids comment

To mark the 70th anniversary of D-Day this is a boxed set of three paperback books from the True Stories series: The Blitz, D-Day and The Second World War. This collection provides a great introduction to the military tactics, the tools of warfare and the roles of soldiers and civilians during this tumultuous time. But also, through the use of real-life stories these books illustrate the very personal experiences of war and the impact on those who lived through the Second World War.
