Title: The Blitzed Brits

The Blitzed Brits isn’t the best Horrible Histories book, but it’s still worth a read – in my mind, the Vicious Vikings and the Rotten Romans made for better reads. Still, this does give a valuable glimpse in to the dangerous world of The Second World War.
Let’s be honest, it’s a period in British history that even I’m proud of, and I’m hardly patriotic. But the Brits made a name for themselves for stoicism and resilience, and they lived up to their reputation when they stood up to the Nazis during World War II.
As with any war, it’s the human stories that really grab your attention – Deary captures the essence of their stories like a master.
