Synopsis

Avoid Being a US Civil War Soldier by Thomas Ratliff

The humorous cartoon style illustrations and the narrative approach encourage readers to get emotionally involved with the characters and to follow the story from the Battle of Bull Run to the siege at Petersburg - the bloodiest war in American history. The book features handy hints that help to keep you alive at the battlefront, including tips on keeping your spirits up and avoiding capture. Informative captions, a comprehensive glossary and an index make this title an ideal and fun introduction to the conventions of non-fiction text. This is an ideal text for shared and guided reading for Key Stage 2.
