Time travel to WW2

If you like time travel and enjoy books for young adults, you'll love "Johnny and the Bomb." It tells the continuing story of Johnny and his friends who live in a small English town. In this one they travel back in time to World War II with some unintended but disasterous results.
I highly recommend all of Sir Terry Pratchett's books. This is one of his few not set on the Discworld. It is both humerous and about serious subjects all at once.
