Mike Brown's book is well worth a read,with some fascinating insights into some of the finer detail of the Second World War from the perspective of a child.The only drawbacks are the shortness(just over 100 pages)which I didn't realise on purchase,and for me an over-reliance on photographs within those 100 pages,meaning the actual dialogue is really quite thin on the ground.Nevertheless a very worthy record of events in Britain during that time.One telling number,8,000 British under 16's lost their lives through enemy action between 1939-45.I would have preferred a little more realism in the account on this,there is little reference to those affected so closely by this statistic.

I enjoyed this book very much. Imagine my surprise when I passed through the acknowledgements, I saw my mothers name jump out at me and came across her contributions, which I remember her telling me as a child. Wish there had been more.

Excellent for those of us whose memory goes back to this time. Also my 9 yr old grandson is anxious to get his hands on it!

Britain's Children Under the Blitz 8 May 2013
By A. A. Nofi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
A summary of the review on StrategyPage.Com:

'Brown, author of several books on Britain's Home Front during the Second World War, such as Evacuees: Evacuation in Wartime Britain 1939-1945 and The Day Peace Broke Out: The VE-Day Experience, here takes a look at children and childhood. The book covers, children and mass evacuations from cities to rural areas and even to Canada, their experiences under the Blitz, wartime schooling policies, shortages of goods, clothing, and food, even children "Doing Their Bit" to help the war effort, and even the effect of the war on toys, play, and holidays. Full of statistics and unusual information, such as how to erect a bomb shelter, very well-illustrated, and often amusing, this work will prove valuable for anyone with an interest in the war, and essential for those with an interest in the effects of war on society.'

Interesting review of life in Britian during WW2 from a child's perspective. 13 May 2013
By Rich Marsh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is an interesting and easy read, but it was also light-weight in one key respect. It dealt with the children's view of the war, without the war. We never see any children's reactions to the actual impact of the war on them. What happened if Dad was killed, or an older brother became a POW? There were a few references to what happened if a bomb landed nearby, but that was the extent of it.
