Synopsis

The First World War 1914-1918 by Pam Robson

Discover how the First World War began, what life was like for soldiers in the trenches but also what life was like for the civilians left at home. Find out what kind of weapons were used, the ships and submarines that patrolled the seas, as well as facts and information about food shortages, espionage and the dreaded poison gas. Finally, learn how peace was achieved and how the aftermath of the First World War would affect Europe for many years to come.
