Historical and literacy skills are developed through interpreting photographs and secondary sources, locating and categorising information and studying the impact of the wartime experience.
Each book includes a CD-ROM that contains all the pages of the book and illustrations files in editable formats. These files can be amended to suit the specific needs of your students.
