William at War Summary

William at War by Richmal Crompton

Wartime William is still up to mischief!

William is always ready to offer his services to his country. But why is it that his enthusiastic contribution is so seldom appreciated? William is determined to do his bit, but unfortunately no one else thinks he'd make a hero . . .

William at War by Richmal Compton is a selection of ten of William's most wonderful wartime stories in which William proves himself just as dangerous, unpredictable and downright troublesome as the Enemy! This much-loved children's classic features contemporary cover art by Michael Foreman, an introduction by actor and comedian John Sessions, along with the original inside illustrations by Thomas Henry - allowing a new generation to enjoy this unforgettable character.

There is only one William. This tousle-headed, snub-nosed, hearty, loveable imp of mischief has been harassing his unfortunate family and delighting his hundreds of thousands of admirers since 1922.
