Stuffez-vous, Monsieur Itlaire!,
This review is from: The Frightful First World War AND the Woeful Second World War (Horrible Histories Collections) (Paperback)
Whether frightful or woeful, the two world wars must have been occasions we sadly missed out from our history books. Ladies and gents: forget those nightmarish hystery classes, snap up your copy of this and engross yourself.
Mind you: this IS an instructive survey (a teacher should know), but in to the bargain (£5.99 or less) one get the odds and ends and titbits the self-respecting history book looks down on with condescension.
This is facts seasoned by the naked chefs of history with a pinch of Chaplin's Shoulder Arms and Beany Blackadder.
Wanted things interactive? What about the quizzes, the recipes, the do's and don'ts, not to forget, Martin Brown's tongue-in-cheek cartoons.
Why wait? Forget "vere'ave you'idden ze biddy, Leclerc?", but roll up the barrel and snap up that copy.
And eat your heart out, Duglaz'Aig.
