I bought this book for my 11yo son who kept asking me questions about WW1 (a war in which his paternal great-grandfather had fought as a 16yo). I have to say that this is an excellent book. It answered virtually all his questions as well as adding to my knowledge of the subject - we both came away with a much clearer idea about why it happened, what happened, and how it changed and affected the world then and now. A great book!

As said in other reviews, all part of our WW1 display at Church! Wonderful book for the younger people at Church, easy for them to understand without being patronising. Really Really Great book!

I found this book via the Book Trust, while looking for something to use for my PGCE interview, where I had a book presentation. I stand by everything I said about this book during my interview- Everything is neatly laid out and well structured, with topics broken down into simple, easy to read chunks which will keep the reader interested. The book is also neatly designed and colourful, I particularly like how the author has used several pictures from the IWM. While it may not be the most detailed WW1 book out there, it gives a good insight and overview of the key events/topics of the war. Overall, a fascinating and entertaining book- one which helped me secure a place on my PGCE course! Recommended.

Excellent quality literature. Highly accessible. My son is 10 and was able to read this independently. Reading to learn as opposed to learning to read!

Excellent reference book for children - and for adults who are a little hazy about the origins and course of the war.
