World War Two (WW2)

To mark the 70th Anniversay in 2015 of the end of World War Two we have gathered together a selection of books, fiction and non-fiction, new titles and old ones, for a wide range of ages, to reflect the tragedy of World War 2.

Over the coming years a lot of books will be published for around WW2 anniversaries, so we will be selecting our favourites, both fiction and non-fiction to keep up to date. We hope it will inspire children never to forget the sacrifices made by their forbears. 'Lest we forget'.

Code Name Verity

Code Name Verity

Author: Elizabeth Wein Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 06/02/2012

This is an award-winning and bestselling tale of friendship and courage. Only in wartime could a stalwart lass from Manchester rub shoulders with a Scottish aristocrat, one a pilot, the other a special operations executive. When a vital mission goes wrong, and one of the friends has to bail out of a faulty plane over France, she is captured by the Gestapo and becomes a prisoner of war. The story begins in 'Verity's' own words, as she writes her account for her captors. Truth or lies? Honour or betrayal? Everything they've ever believed in is put to the test... A remarkable book. (Daily Mail).
