author’s comments:
The stories in Voices from the Second World War were collected by children from all over the world who met with people who wanted to share experiences from the war. These stories, which take place from the outbreak of the war to the Hiroshima bombing, capture the spirit and courage of a generation of people affected by World War II.

The story collection project was conducted by Walker Books in collaboration with First News, an award-winning weekly newspaper for children in the U.K.
