The Lovereading4Kids comment
Award-winning Tony Robinson has an outstanding record for bringing the past to life. Here his books on World War 1 and World War 11 are presented in one bumper volume. Through factual accounts, quizzes, diagrams and a great many pictures the quirky details of the conflicts as well as the more pedestrian and well- known ones are explained in a way that is both intriguing and memorable. Tony Robinson never trivialises the war but he handles a lot of information lightly which makes the finding out fun!
