Adventures in Time: The Second World War




Travel back in time to a world at war, with the first book in a thrilling new children's history series

'It was two-thirty in the morning. Darkness hung over the coast of France...'
Prepare for a journey back into the most dramatic conflict the world has ever seen, as historian Dominic Sandbrook takes us on a spine-tingling, heart-stopping adventure. We witness the Second World War first-hand through the eyes of ordinary people living in extraordinary times, from the women who worked all night in factories to the chess players who cracked unbreakable codes. Because in total war, no life is left untouched...

In the Adventures in Time series, Dominic Sandbrook brings the past alive for twenty-first century children. This unique publishing venture will allow a new generation to discover the thrills and spills of history. These are exhilarating adventures, every bit as exciting as classic children's fiction. The only difference is that they happen to be true.
