Gunner Girls and Fighter Boys written by Mary Gibson is one fantastic work of historical fiction based on the lives of two sisters Peggy and May. This for me was an excellent read as the lives of May and Peggy changed forever when the Second World War started in 1939.
Thia book showed the daily lives of those residents of London, where the Blitz tore the heart out of it.
For me, the main character was May the youngest daughter and her life through the war really brought her out of her shy backward self to become a young woman who was prepared to lay down her life for her country and those she loved.
Though this is a work of fiction it was one book where I learned so much as the history of the Second World War was brought alive through vivid writing and wonderful storytelling. From the bomb sites of London to the countryside of Surrey, to the Middle East this is one book which will take you on a journey like no other book ever written.
I would also recommend Gunner Girls and Fighter Boys
which is narrated by the super talented Ann Dover who really brings the story alive through her narration.
Gunner Girls and Fighter Boys written by Mary Gibson is one book I would highly recommend especially to those readers who like books based on the era of the Second World War.
Happy to recommend.
