Abstract
 
Description
Based on the acclaimed BBC-TV documentary series The People's Century, this is a history book with a difference. Much of the story of the twentieth century is told by the children who witnessed its marvels and its horrors at first hand. The author, John D Clare, writer and Head of History in a large secondary school, guides the reader through the major events of the century without ever drowning out the voices of the children who were there: watching the first cross-English-Channel flight: playing the piano in a silent-movie theater; as eager members of the Hitler Youth Movement; or presenting flowers to Shostakovich after a concert given during the siege of Leningrad. This book links the experiences of children from different decades and different parts of the world with own own, to provide a fascinating retrospective of the 20th century as a whole. - from Amzon
