Thoughts:
Top Secret Files: World War II: Spies, Secret Missions, and Hidden Facts from World War II (Top Secret Files of History) by Stephanie Bearce is part of a new series focusing on quick stories and simple facts of major wars. This is exactly the kind of book I loved to read in elementary school, quick facts, fascinating stories and a few experiments to boot.

This book focuses on World War II and its secrets, such as Camp X, the Code Talkers, special weapons and such persons as Christopher Hutton, Noor Inayat, Moe Berg and Josephine Baker (yes, THAT Josephine Baker). At the end of each chapter there are some basic activities to do (I didn’t do them, but they looked interesting).

While I was not the aimed age group for this book, I did enjoy it. It’s a quick read (read it in a day), exciting stories and interesting projects / experiments. It is an excellent introduction to World War II without introducing too much of the horrors that have happened.
