Terry Deary – Woeful Second World War


It’s hard to say that you enjoyed a book like this because it’s a sad old read due its very nature. For example, you learn about kids getting shot for desertion and the horrors of the holocaust, and while this book is aimed at younger children, it doesn’t attempt to sugar coat it. And nor should it.

I read this book for the first time as an adult and I feel like I learned a lot. It’s important to remember the horrors of the Second World War, and books like this are important because they help to make sure that the next generation won’t unknowingly make the same mistakes. Though there’s no saying what people might do knowingly. Well worth reading.
