Synopsis

Animals at War In Association with the Imperial War Museum by Isabel George, Rob Lloyd Jones

This brand new addition to the Usborne Young Reading series focuses on animals and the roles they have played in conflict, both modern and ancient. Find out how elephants helped Hannibal attack Rome, why pigeons saved hundreds of lives in World Wars 1 and 2 and how a little donkey called Murphy came to the rescue of wounded soldiers in World War One, along with many other stories of heroism and courage. Usborne's Young Reading series was developed in conjunction with experts from Roehampton University and is designed to encourage independent reading. Each title has clear, engaging text and is accompanied by original illustrations.

Their stories are compelling and as tragic as those of the soldiers they served' - Write Away
