From a century that began with "The War to End All Wars", and has gone on warring into the next, comes a collection of diaries showing conflict through young people's eyes. Starting with 12-year-old Berliner Piete Kuhr in 1914, the diaries chart very different experiences of World War II - from a New Zealand gunner to a homesick Kindertransport child to a concentration camp inmate - followed by war journals written during Vietnam, the Balkans War, the Taliban regime, Intifada, the Israeli conflict and the Iraq war. From Austria to Moscow, Singapore to Bosnia, Israel to Iraq, young voices respond frankly to stark and terrible events, confiding their deepest hopes and fears and reflecting a common humanity transcending culture, faith and geography.
