Moreover, I learnt a lot... which is why I would strongly recommend it to everyone eager to know more about our national heritage.” Dr Prannoy Roy, Chairman NDTV

This collection of 14 children's war diaries takes off from where Anne Frank's diary left. These excerpts from diaries offer a compelling window into life off the battlefield during wars which uproot people physically and mentally. The voices of the diary writers mostly teenagers in World War I Germany; World War II Russia, Austria, New Zealand, Germany, Singapore, and the U.S.; Holocaust Lithuania and Poland; Vietnam; Israel and Palestine; and, finally, Iraq echo what they share and experience - the fear, helpless longing, hatred and loss that the innocent citizens are face to face with sometimes suddenly.

Slata Filipovic and Melanie Challenger create a gripping historical narrative real as real could be, telling the stories not in facts and figures that one reads/sees in the media but the first person accounts of the affected.

A must read for all the teenagers, the makers of the world tomorrow. Let us all hope and pray that this book makes is always remember the horrors, and not the glories of war, and renew our personal resolve to do what we can to work for peace and justice.
