Prepare to discover the most utterly unbelievable REAL facts about WWII . . .

Did you know that onions were given as birthday presents in WWII? Or that exploding camel dung was used as a weapon? Could a leaky toilet force a submarine crew to abandon ship?

This is history like you've never known it before! Ask yourself . . .

Would you eat squirrel tail soup, cow's udders, or a carrot on a stick?
Could you share 12.7cm of bathwater with your WHOLE family - for your weekly wash?
If you were a spy, which gadgets and inventions would you choose?

From flying tanks to Operation Toenail, read about the daring, tragic and heroic events that shaped one of the most influential conflicts in modern times.

With a bold design and colourful illustrations, picture the most amazing, and unbelievable, facts from this world-changing time.
