50 Children's Books about World War Two

Soliders at war

VE Day marks the end of the Second World War when Prime Minister Winston Churchill announced at 3pm on 8th May 1945 that the war had ended after Nazi Germany's surrender the day before. This year (2020) marks 75 years since this momentous announcement but sadly, due to the current coronavirus pandemic, there will be no large-scale public events to mark the event.

This is such an important event to remember and given the huge loss of life it can feel like a difficult subject to address with children. To help, we've picked out 50 books to help children learn and understand the Second World War (including D-Day, which marks the series of events when Allied forces landed in an extensive and coordinated air, land and naval attack on Nazi-occupied northern France) and have separated our recommendations into sections for Younger Readers, Non-Fiction & Reference, Diaries and Older Fiction.
