'Being a war baby was just hard luck' - or was it? Children growing up in wartime were certainly kept busy. They could be building a shelter, Digging for Victory in an allotment, taking a day off school for potato-picking, even befriending an evacuee. They had tasks to do - because many fathers were away at war and mothers working in weapons factories or perhaps driving lorries.

A Wartime Scrapbook gives children of the twenty-first century a vivid picture of the Second World War. It is a book for whole families to explore together, especially if grandparents or elderly relatives have memories of their own to share.

This book is also available in Welsh, entitled Amser Rhyfel.
