What They Don't Tell You About the Blitz

What They Don't Tell You About the Blitz

by Bob Fowke (Author)


'The Blitz brought out the best in people. Neighbours who hadn't spoken to each other for years passed cups of tea over the garden fence...' Opening with crucial details on how events in Germany led to World War II, the book then launches into a fascinating look at what life was like during the Blitz. Topics include evacuation, gas masks, bomb shelters, food rationing, the home guard and GIs. The book gives an excellent all-round view of the war, with information on how the British forces fought back and the effects this had on countries around the world. Written in the lively style common to this series, with fantastic cartoon illustrations. Complete with index.

Media Reviews
'(The series) provides a 'way in' for less confident readers and whets the appetite of history-phobes.' -- Literacy & Learning 'These bright and breezy books are packed with quirky facts and information. They work equally well as books for dipping into at random or as accessible end-to-end reads.' -- Books for Keeps
