Book Description

1 Jun 2011
Acclaimed children's author Allan Burnett turns his attention to the Second World War in a book of explosively exciting and emotionally charged tales of bravery and adventure. Featuring the true exploits of soldiers, spies, pilots, sailors and many others, these stories, all based on interviews with these heroes themselves or their descendants, offer a unique, personal insight into the Second World War that no conventional history book can ever hope to match.

5.0 out of 5 stars Scottish Tales of WWII 3 Jun 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Alan Burnett, a former journalist, has done a great deal of historical research for each of the stories in this book. He then constructs the stories, based on the evidence, in a very readable, interesting fashion. The books are designed for children, though they are so well written that they are appealing to adults as well. Indeed, I bought this one for my father, a WWII veteran.
