Description: This is a special new edition of Michael Foreman's classic sequel to the award-winning "War Boy". Life for a young boy is different after the Second World War ends - the country is moving forward again and he is finding his place in the world.
Synopsis: Life for a young boy is different after the Second World War ends - the country is moving forward again and he is finding his place in the world. Once the victory parades are over and the barbed wire and unexploded bombs are cleared his attention is drawn to football, music, girls and art. Michael Foreman's personal story is the story of life in Britain in the '40s and '50s - from soldiers returning from war to jazz clubs and 'teddy boys' - a time when everything changes. Like 'War Boy', 'After the War Was Over' is a lively and innovative combination of story and factual information with Foreman's trademark beautiful illustrations.
