Book DescriptionEdit

History with the nasty bits left in!

The Woeful Second World War tells you the foul facts about the worst war ever - from snow-bound cities under siege and fly-infested jungle trenches to Mrs Higginbottom's house two doors down - nowhere was safe.

Want to know:


  • who made a meal out of maggots?
  • which smelly soldiers were sniffed out by their enemies?
  • why white knickers could kill you?

Read on for outrageous rumours that everybody believed and wicked weapons that nobody would believe. Find out about 80-year-olds who lied to join 'Dad's Army' and 12-year-olds who died defending Berlin to the bitter end.

History has never been so horrible!
