This horrible history book is amazing. This book is mostly talking about how life is like in Second World War and what events that happened in the World War also it has lots of interesting things that you can learn more about the the second world war. This book has quite a lot of humor with slight of weird but funny jokes.In my opinion, this is one of my favorite book of the series and if you like humor and learning things i'd recommend getting this book.
