Archie's War by Marcia Williams
Archie's War by Marcia Williams
0 of 1 people found the following review helpful
A brilliant visual history of the First World War apparently written in cartoon/scrapbook form by a boy, whose relatives are at the front. With letters, which can be opened,and many pictures of World War memorabilia, it is an absorbing read for anyone from 8 upwards, giving a a very vivid picture of life as it was in England at that time. For an equally brilliant picture of the Second World War, My War Diary by Flossie Albright, daughter of Archie, (also written by Marcia Williams), is an essential follow-up.

Roses Under the Miombo Trees: An English Girl in Rhodesia
A beautifully written and very visual picture of the life and attitudes of a colonial family in the 1960's in Rhodesia, based on letters written home to England, and augmented with delightful poems, which give the narrative an extra dimension.
