Christina Rex, who was two years old when war broke out, has collected the reminiscences of other British children who grew up learning and playing through the six years of conflict ('I was more frightened of a dog than I was of the war!'). She takes the story from the initial evacuations and preparations with gas masks and Anderson shelters to children's shrapnel collections, American servicemen's chewing gum and the VE Day celebrations ('...very exciting and there were fireworks').
