Social & Industrial History
Books 3 and 4 (The Certainties of Place and A Thicker Cut), here bound in a single volume, continue Kynaston's extraordinarily evocative narrative, from an ailing King George VI opening the Festival of Britain and the Conservative victory that made Churchill once more Prime Minister, to the Suez crisis, Soviet action in Hungary and bus fares raised in Lowestoft to offset petrol rises. Off-mint.
Voices from the Second World War
Witnesses Share Their Stories with the Children of Today
The recollections in this book cover a wide range of wartime experiences from fleeing Nazi Germany and surviving the Blitz to working for the resistance in occupied Europe, parachuting into France as part of the D-Day invasion, and being the navigator on the Enola Gay when it dropped the first atomic bomb on Hiroshima. Many of the accounts were collected by children as part of a project organized by the children's newspaper First News. Age 9+
