Lovely book, set out into important events and also not only the major events of the war itself but also what went on back home also. Not as many illustrations as I expected as bought for my nephew who is not a very confident reader but we will enjoy looking at and reading the book together!

This is an absolutely fabulous book, extremely easy for kids to understand. The pictures are great, and ours has been read from cover to cover many times.

My son was doing a class project covering various decades of the 20th century and his assigned decade was 1940's. This book was perfect for covering the details on second world war and he found it really useful. I would also say that I found it really informative and would recommend this to anyone.

I loved this book. Bought it for my husband and ended up reading it myself too as it describes the wars in easy language with lots of big photos and images which really takes you into the story

8 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Arneson Stidgeley on 9 Mar. 2010
The book contains lavish photographs and clear text, going through all the events of the Second World War, and is ideal for teenagers.

Perhaps it could have done with one or two more maps. Another drawback is a slight political bias: the introduction refers to Hitler and Mussolini's flaws and labels them 'right wing'. When the drawbacks of Stalin and the Soviet Union are mentioned the phrase 'left wing' never occurs. Why was that?

But those are slight quibbles and I shall certainly go through this book with my children.
