Liverpool's Children : In the Second World War Paperback



This is the untold story of Liverpool's children in the Second World War.

Whilst everyone is familiar with the tales of evacuees who were rushed out of the cities once the bombs started falling, many of us are unaware that many stayed behind, either by choice or necessity, as the city of their childhood disintegrated and burned around them.

In the words of those who experienced the Liverpool Blitz first-hand, we hear of their adventures and misadventures, the fun and games and ever-present danger, and the humor and sorrow of those wartime years.

This is an important and revealing look at the war as seen through the eyes of these children.

This book not only explores the memories of a childhood ravaged by war, but also the formative effect this had on individuals' lives.

It reflects the collective spirit of a city that refused to be crushed, even at the darkest hours of the Luftwaffe's bombing campaign.

Ideal for anyone who lived through those times, or who is fascinated by experiences and the legacy of the wartime generation, this new title pays tribute to the war's forgotten children.
