An Enjoyable Education,
This review is from: The First World War (Usborne True Stories) (Paperback)
Part of an Usborne True Stories collection, this is an excellent introduction to World War for children aged around 7+. Short chapters recount such key events as the Somme, the Christmas truce and football match between German and British soldiers and how the Great War led to another war soon afterwards. The author Paul Dowsell has also recently written two excellent novels for children aged 10+, Auslander and Sektion 20, so you can appreciate how well written these true stories are.
There are very useful links to other sources of information on this period in history including other non-fiction, films and poetry.
