The first chapter in The Matchbox is about a girl named Ginetta. The story is based about her life. Ginetta’s adventures in The Matchbox happen between 1937 and 1945. During this time a man named Benito Mussolini ruled Italy.

In 1936, Italy, Germany and Japan banded together to support each other as they tried to take over the world. This was the start of World War II in 1939.
Although 6 countries from all over the world tried to stop them, the war lasted for 6 years.
