First World War

The Story of the First World War for Children Originally known as 'The Great War', what we now call the First World War was the world's first 'total war', which involved nations across the globe on an unprecedented scale. As it was the first war between modern, industrialised nations, it saw new and terrifying weapons deployed for the first time. These included airplanes, tanks, zeppelins, giant warships and poison gas, all of which brought about unprecedented devastation. The sombre colours used throughout the book reflect the terror it brought about, and really effective use is made of contemporary photographs to bring it home to today's readers. Read on...
