Fact or fiction? Correctly guess these WWII battles and we’ll tell you a cool fact

The one about toilet paper will make you GASP!

History is never without bias. It’s usually told from the POV of the winner of a coup, a battle, a war. And rarely are you told the whole truth. That’s what is so EXCITING about Michael Grant’s ‘Silver Stars’.

It’s seeing a time in our history from a whole new perspective. Plus learning about WWII and realising it was more than just D-Day and the Blitz. Some battles and operations have THE BEST names, you’ll want to use them as code names for your next campaign for baes heart (all is fair in love and war, eh?)

The Guardian aren’t just attacking Zoella, they’re telling teenage girls they’re stupid

‘Silver Stars’ gives us WWII like you’ve NEVER perceived it before because in this alternate history, US women and girls are allowed to sign up to fight on the front line!

Can you correctly guess which of these WWII battles are real? We’ve nestled them within some outrageous fakes… And if you guess, we’ll tell you a wicked cool fact that will make your jaw drop. #agape



How did you get on? Do you need some historical inspo from the ‘Silver Stars’ girls?
