    This is the fun way to learn history. And even if you like me, a historian, think you know everything about the subject, you don't. The author has dug up funny stories, absurd things and practices that probably are news to a lot of people that did not live in those days. Give this book to anyone that says "history is boring"! I certainly will.

    Bought the three Horrible Histories books for my granddaughter. She loves them.

    The books in the Horrible Histories series are fantastic, because they are written to entertain children from 9-13, and are full of facts, cartoons, lists, pictures and quizzes. This book, The Blitzed Brits, covers evacuation, gas masks, bombing, rationing, and dozens of true stories about children during the Second World War.As a teacher, I think it is brilliant because it makes the children want to read and find out more about the topic we are covering, it can be dipped into and the children are learning while having fun.Highly recommended.

    I never new that a book could be funny and factual at the same time! My favourite bit is the story about a lady running out of her house naked when an air rade siren went off! And I especially like the pictures. I suggest that you either buy this book in the series or that you by another book by this awesome novelist (which, I can ensure you will be equally good!) I hope it tickles your funny bone!!
