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?

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.
