    A thorough overview of World War II history for young readers. 
     
    The Fact Atlas series offers an age-appropriate overview of the historic and world-changing events of World War II, covering everything from the rise of Hitler and Nazism to the tragedy of the Holocaust and its long-lasting effects. Readers will be introduced to key players: political and military leaders like Winston Churchill and Franklin Roosevelt as well as Joseph Stalin, Benito Mussolini, and many more. Explore the ideas of democracy versus totalitarianism and international relations during the 1930s. Learn more about the different countries that became involved in the Second World War, with a focus on most of Europe, the United States, and Japan. Lesser-known facts about the involvement of countries such as China, Libya, Ethiopia, and New Zealand make it very clear that the war touched all corners of our world. 
     
    Accompanied by photos and maps to outline specific events, this book offers a careful breakdown of how the war played out globally. Battles and campaigns are explained and examined, and young readers will be able to follow the war from beginning to end, analyzing causes and effects of each important event. World War II gives young readers the opportunity to grasp the weight and magnitude of one of the very worst wars the world has seen.

    New friends, a blizzard, a frozen lake, and a case of the mumps make one grand wintertime adventure for a group of children in this classic series. The Ds (Dick and Dorothea) meet the Swallows and Amazons during the winter beside the lake and they all become great friends: joining together in ice skating, learning semaphore signals, refashioning an igloo, and building an ice sled. But a misunderstanding leads to disaster as Dick and Dorothea head off across the frozen lake to a spot they have named the “North Pole.” And, Nancy, the Amazon leader, meanwhile is stuck at home with mumps . . . Friendship and resourcefulness, dangers and rescues: Arthur Ransome’s Swallows and Amazons series has stood the test of time. More than just great stories, each one celebrates independence and initiative with a colorful, large cast of characters. Winter Holiday (originally published in 1933) is the fourth title in the Swallows and Amazons series, books for children or grownups, anyone captivated by a world of adventure, exploration, and imagination.“The story is the best kind of adventure story . . . Every step is possible, and everyone is transmuted into romance by deliberate purpose. Nothing that the children do is beyond the reach of a group provided that winter, a frozen lake, and mumps connive to perfect adventure.” —Observer (UK)
