Activity Book - World War 2
World War II was Britain's finest hour. Despite rationing, the blitz and the evacuation of children, everyone rallied to fight against a Nazi invasion. Women played a vital role in Britain's war effort, undertaking the work of their husbands, fathers, brothers and sons. Winston Churchill made rousing speeches strengthening Britainï¿½s morale. Hitler began to lose his grip in Europe and with the help of American, Commonwealth and allied soldiers, Britain was able to triumph against the odds.
The end of the war came after the atomic bombs at Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The scale of the devastation was a shocking glimpse of the power unleashed by such weapons. Worse was to come with the horrifying discovery of death camps in Europe, where millions perished, revealing the depths to which mankind is capable of sinking.
In the aftermath of World War II millions were dead, missing or wounded and world leaders were left to count the cost of the largest conflict the world had ever seen. Softback, 22 pages, many illustrations which the owner can add colour.
