Children at War

First World War Women

Their war, their lives, their stories

Children at War

Join Viv on a unique journey to the heart of the children’s war, 1914-18.

In a unique ‘world tour’ expect to be drawn into the intimate everyday stories of British, German, French, Belgian, Australian, Ukrainian and Russian youngsters – from childhood to adolescence, frequently in their own voices through their diaries.

At times humorous, frequently terrifying, always surprising.

Readers will marvel at children’s courage, ingenuity, patriotism and pacifism, wholeheartedly agreeing with the child who said, ‘What was done to us was wrong’.
