World War II is often presented from a European perspective and the extent of the colonies contribution to the success of the Allies is little known. This book is one of the first of its kind to detail the massive commitment and impact made from people of colour during World War II from former British Empire territories and Commonwealth countries.
Written for young people and to help develop research and interpretation skills in History, English and Citizenship (key stages 3-4), it includes authentic photographs, case studies and activities, which will make learning fun and enjoyable.
Royalties from the sales of the book go to the Royal Commonwealth Ex-Services League (RCEL) who support veterans from the Commonwealth and former British Empire many of whom are World War II veterans.
