The bestselling history of the Second World War, now abridged and illustrated.

This landmark series brought history to life in a way that had never been done before - through the words of ordinary men and women. Their eyewitness accounts tell the story of the Second World War in a way that no other history title can. Now this bestselling book has been edited, adapted and illustrated to make it more accessible and even more commercial.

It is a history book that consists almost entirely of authentic oral accounts of the Second World War, told in the words of the people who survived it. Divided into three sections, each section is arranged thematically so that readers can find out more about subjects such as what life was really like fighting the Japanese or how women contributed to the war effort.

Fully illustrated with photographs from the Imperial War Museum archives, maps and timelines, complete with special features boxes giving additional background information and a glossary, this book is destined to become an essential reference for pupils, teachers and families everywhere.
