    world war 2

    The great World War 2 battle by Simon Adams is about Americans fighting for their rights and freedom. It tells you about all of the weapons (guns, tanks, bombs, and mines).Plus it tells you about the leader of the German army Hitler. Also you can hear about the secret weapons they used (Pen pistol , Pencil knife). There is even a pill that spies would take if they were captured witch would kill them. Plus my favorite weapon was the flamethrower! This book tells how the war started and ended. This book tells you a lot of things about the German and American armies. So if you like action-packed books about the war than this is a book for you! by:Logan
