What Was the War Like Grandma? (R Tonkin)


Description:
Grandma Emmy remembers what the war was like. Listening to the wireless each night for news from the front-lines, crouching in trenches during air-raid drills at school, making cakes and socks for the war effort. The war meant blackouts and sandbagging, but also playing with searchlights and the first taste of hamburgers. Although the fighting was far away, everyone's lives changes forever.

Short-listed for the Eve Pownall Award for Information Books,
Childrens's Book Council of Australia Awards, 1996.
