Published in association with Imperial War Museums, The Story of the Second World War for Children sensitively teaches kids about history's deadliest conflict. Packed with photographs, maps, and detailed cross-sections of famous tanks, aircraft, submarines, and warships, this fascinating exploration of the Second World War outlines key battles and shows how the conflict affected people across the world--not just the soldiers fighting on land, at sea, and in the air, but also the children evacuated to the countryside, bombed-out city dwellers, and civilians working in munitions factories. Bite-sized feature boxes throughout highlight subjects of particular interest to youngsters, including life inside a U-boat; spy and resistance equipment; a wartime recipe; and the trials of surviving a Russian winter as a soldier.
