The Story of World War One

It began 100 years ago. They said it would be over by Christmas. They were wrong! Read about the tanks and trenches, bombs and battlefields that make up the chilling story of World War One.

Did you know that German Zeppelins were made from cow intestines, the same material as sausage skins, so sausages were banned in Germany? Or that the fighting was stopped on Christmas Day 1914, so that German and British soldiers could play football in no man’s land? Discover these facts, and so much more, in this fascinating book.

Richard Brassey, author of the successful THE STORY OF THE OLYMPICS, brings World War One to life in this unique take on the history and events of one of the 20th century’s most important episodes. Full of wonderful, full-colour illustrations and interesting stories, this is a timely addition to existing books on the subject that will interest even the most reluctant readers.

Our Review Panel says...

This is a colourfully illustrated non-fiction text that explains the history of the First World War to young readers. Packed with facts and clear explanations, this is an appealing and informative choice of book to support a World War 1 topic in the classroom.
