World War II Told Through 100 Artifacts
War Told Through Artifacts
Reading Level: 8
Interest Level: 7-12
This engaging volume sheds light on iconic events and lesser-known incidents alike in its study of World War II through the lens of one hundred objects related to the war. Much like the conflict itself, the selected items span the globe, from German U-boats that terrorized the North Atlantic to the bridge over the River Kwai in Thailand, built by British prisoners of war. Readers will learn about the weapons and vehicles of war, counterintelligence artifacts such as the Enigma machine and secret radio, and items used on the home front such as ration cards.
