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 have purchased both First and Second World War Usborne books. As expected from this publisher the books are very clear and cover a lot of ground with fantastic photographs and illustrations. We use them as part of our home educating for my two grandsons, but they would be a useful addition to anyone's bookshelf. As an adult have found out a few interesting facts from these books that I was unaware of previously

Bought for my nephew who is doing world war 2 at school - he loved it, almost couldn't put it down! His mum says she needs to brush up on it too so will read it herself. This is a book that is well laid out into bite sized chunks. He will not have to read everything for it to make sense, but will be able to grow into the book as he gets older.

A fabulous detailed book. Packed with information. Bought it for my 8 year old but it may be a little advanced for her - she can still get a lot from the book but I reckon it is aimed at a slightly older child with a more mature attention span.

i bought this as a book to use in year 5 for our topic of ww2. some of the text was quite high level which was ok for some but alot of the vocabulary was difficult for thier age. interesting to read for myself though!

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.
