History Through Film: Why Remember the First World War? Student Book by Paul Turner

Written to support the teaching of history skills in the 2014 National Curriculum, this First World War depth study will capture your students' interest while helping them to prepare for GCSE. 'Why Remember the First World War?' is the first in a new series called 'History Through Film' produced in partnership with British Pathe, and covers: the causes of the war, joining up, serving in the war, war methods, the home front, and the peace treaty.


It is a brilliant book with great sources to extens pupils knowledge. It was easily accessible and I found the key words useful to demonstrate pupils understanding. The illustrations were also great! Pupils really enjoyed the lessons I planned using this book. * Lauren Kelly, PGCE History Student at Edge Hill University *
