This review is from: The Frightful First World War (Horrible Histories) (Paperback)
History as it should be taught. There are all kinds of interesting facts that appeal to our disgustable (yes I know that's not really a word) sense of interest as humans. The cause of war, who was allies with whom, and why we hoped it would never happen again makes so much sense when read like this.
A book for children? No. A book for everyone! Everyone who likes to learn facts and be entertained at the same time.
Through wit, humour and true stories the author manages to make the First World War both interesting and poignant.
