5.0 out of 5 stars The Blitzed Brits
The books in the Horrible Histories series are fantastic, because they are written to entertain children from 9-13, and are full of facts, cartoons, lists, pictures and quizzes. This book, The Blitzed Brits, covers evacuation, gas masks, bombing, rationing, and dozens of true stories about children during the Second World War.
As a teacher, I think it is brilliant...

5.0 out of 5 stars The Blitzed Brits, 6 Feb 2005
The books in the Horrible Histories series are fantastic, because they are written to entertain children from 9-13, and are full of facts, cartoons, lists, pictures and quizzes. This book, The Blitzed Brits, covers evacuation, gas masks, bombing, rationing, and dozens of true stories about children during the Second World War.
As a teacher, I think it is brilliant because it makes the children want to read and find out more about the topic we are covering, it can be dipped into and the children are learning while having fun.
Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Blizted Brits is a fantastic book., 13 Jun 2001
By A Customer
The Blitzed Brits is a fantastic read which uses a informal way of teaching history to young children (13-16). The book includes humerous stories based on real life events and quizes at the end of each chapter to see what you learnt, or just for fun.

4.0 out of 5 stars 'History has never been so horrible!', 26 Mar 2007
Can you imagine life without television, road signs and bananas?

Or only having enough clothing coupons to buy a small pair of knickers?

Not to mention the late-night bombing raids.

These were just some of the hardships for the people who stayed at home in World War Two - the blitzed Brits.

Want to know:

* what really happened in Dad's Army?
* how to make a rude noise with a gas mask?
* why the blitzed Brits ate chicken-fruit, sinkers and nutty?

Read on for some spiffing slang, foul food facts about rotten rationing, awful evacuation tales, and the terrible truth about London's bloodthirsty blackout murderer.'

A witty, colourful cover opens to 128 pages, split over chapters:

1. Blitzed Brit timeline
2. Beat the blitz
3. The bothersome blackout
4. Grotty gas masks
5. Blitzed Brit kids
6. Evils of evacuation
7. Rotten rationing
8. Rotten rationed recipes
9. The black market
10. Famous firsts of wartime
11. The Home Front
12. The Royal Family
13. Potty poems
14. Wartime words

with an introduction and an epilogue.

Written with the typical Deary humour, and illustrations from Kate Sheppard throughout.

'Did you know?

On Friday 1st September 1939 the service to the 2000 televisions in Britain was stopped.
There was no television again until 1946.

Seven years without television ....
....today some people can't go seven minutes!....'

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb read, 17 Feb 2010

Mr. D. Morris (UK) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: The Blitzed Brits (Horrible Histories) (Paperback)
Kids (aged 14 & 12) loved this book. It breaks down the story of the blitz into small readable chunks. Its fun to read, which they say makes it easy to understand, and I have been told many stories about how the children of the day survived.
Its not the first "Horrible Histories" book that we have bought, and all of them give the same sort of easy reading format. Would recommend it to anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hillarious, 24 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I never new that a book could be funny and factual at the same time! My favourite bit is the story about a lady running out of her house naked when an air rade siren went off! And I especially like the pictures. I suggest that you either buy this book in the series or that you by another book by this awesome novelist (which, I can ensure you will be equally good!) I hope it tickles your funny bone!!
