Overview

World War II significantly impacted the lives of children who grew up during that time. From the 1940s to the present day, many novels about the second World War have been written for children and young adults, with the intent of informing young people about the tumultuous events of that period. Many of these novels feature young people as characters, and thus depict the impact of the war on children. This bibliography provides a comprehensive record of the juvenile novels of World War II.

Included are annotated entries for more than 400 novels. Only juvenile novels written or translated into English are included. The entries are arranged chronologically by year, and then alphabetically by author within each chronological section. Excluded are short stories, non-fiction, and picture books. The bibliography is an accurate guide to how the second World War has been interpreted for children and adolescents, how the holocaust has been treated in juvenile literature, and how social issues such as race relations and sex roles have been discussed.
