Synopsis

World War I by Robert Fowke

This book explains how the war started, what it was about and who it involved. It describes the major battles and looks at what life was like for the soldiers in the trenches, the pilots in the air, the sailors at sea and the civilians back home. Written in the lively style common to this series, the author deals with this difficult subject in a sensitive and skilful manner, introducing humour only where appropriate. With black line illustrations throughout.
