This is a book of six bios of people from World War II.
This book is full of interesting facts!
Did you know Hitler was liked by students and teachers in schools?
Did you know Dwight Eisenhower's name at birth was actually David?
Did you know Hirohito died after months of digestive problems?
This book tells each story from birth to death and you will see how each of them made an impact on one another.
This is a great book for anyone interested in World War II, heroes, presidents around World War II, a

This book is about 6 war leaders and they all wanted to win the war, they all really put up a fight, Hitler was the leader (chancellor) of Germany of and he broke the treaty of Versailles, expanding his army over 10 000 troops and attacked every Jewish person he could find and/or put them in a place people called “The Holocaust”.
But Hitler wanted a good life but he could never get what he wanted, he want to become an artist but no university would accept him.
He was invited into a Nazi party and

This was a good book in my opinion because I taught me about the leaders who they were and how they got there. I know some stuff about these people and who they were but this book told me what they did after the war also not just what they did during the war. That's why I give this book a 4-star rating.

This provides a lot of good information about key players of World Ware II. I enjoyed reading it and would recommend it for any elementary-aged student doing research on WWII. The author did a wonderful job describing how each of the characters were tied to each other.

This book was also very in depth about World War II. Included bios about hurler, Churchill, Stalin, Roosevelt, Hirohito, and Eisenhower. The book explained about there childhood, where they went to school, there families, and what they accomplished over there lives. Very interesting book but would be hard for children to understand fully. It would be a good book to use for projects maybe for third or fourth graders.

World War two by Aaron Rosenberg is about six people that made a impact on World War two. They are Adolf Hitler, Winston Churchill, Josef Stalin, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Hirohito, and Dwight D. Eisenhower. It tells about each person childhood and what they did in World War two. Learn about World War two. I recommend this book two people who like history.
