This book is packed with information that kids will find fascinating, from Hitler's rise to power in 1933 to the surrender of the Japanese in 1945. Much more than an ordinary history book, it is filled with excerpts from actual wartime letters written to and by American and German troops, personal anecdotes from people who lived through the war in the United States, Germany, Britain, Russia, Hungary, and Japan, and gripping stories from Holocaust survivors--all add a humanizing global perspective to the war. This collection of 21 activities shows kids how it felt to live through this monumental period in history. They will play a rationing game or try the butter extender recipe to understand the everyday sacrifices made by wartime families. They will try their hands at military strategy in coastal defense, break a code, and play a latitude and longitude tracking game. Whether growing a victory garden or staging an adventure radio program, kids will appreciate the hardships and joys experienced on the home front.

One hundred years after the start of the “Great War,” World War I for Kids provides an intriguing and comprehensive look at this defining conflict that involved all of the world’s superpowers. Why and how did the war come about? What was daily life like for soldiers in the trenches? What roles did zeppelins, barbed wire, and the passenger ship Lusitania play in the war? Who were Kaiser Wilhelm, the Red Baron, and Edith Cavell? Young history buffs will learn the answers these questions and many others, including why the western front bogged down into a long stalemate; how the war ushered in an era of rapid military, technological, and societal advances; and how the United States’ entry helped end the war. Far from a dry catalog of names, dates, and battles, this richly illustrated book goes in depth into such fascinating, topics as turn-of-the-20th-century weaponry and the important roles animals played in the war, and explains connections among events and how the war changed the course of history. Hands-on activities illuminate both the war and the times. Kids will make a periscope, teach a dog to carry messages, make a parachute, learn a popular World War I song, cook Maconochie Stew (a common trench meal), and more. R. Kent Rasmussen is the author or editor of more than 20 books, including the award-winning The United States at War and many books on Mark Twain. He lives in Thousand Oaks, California.

Die letzten Kriegstage des Jahres 1945: Tausende Menschen flüchten aus Angst vor der Roten Armee nach Westen. Darunter Florian, ein deutscher Deserteur, Emilia, eine junge Polin, und Joana, eine litauische Krankenschwester. Eine Notgemeinschaft, in der jeder ein Geheimnis hat, das er nicht preisgeben will. Denn der Krieg hat sie Misstrauen gelehrt. Im eiskalten Winter wählt der kleine Flüchtlingstrek den lebensgefährlichen Weg über das zugefrorene Haff.
