50 Things You Should Know About the First World War by Jim Eldridge
The perfect introduction to the First World War, this book highlights the 50 essential facts that everyone should know. You can discover what caused the war and why it eventually affected every corner of the globe. The key battles, events and figures are all explored and recounted in succinct and easy-to understand text while illustrations and photographs bring the past vividly back to life.
'The main 50 points aren't all just regarding key events - Verdun, Vimy Ridge et al. They bring many of the relevant areas of the war to life - from the women left working on the home front or the Italian situation to the use of tanks, planes, propaganda, chemical warfare... Quite often you get the empathy of the people alive through the decade, and therefore this book would hit many points on a teacher's curriculum.' John Lloyd thebookbag.co.uk
Key facts informatively and succinctly presented are the basis of this book. This book covers the evets of the war in chronological order, including why events unfolded, who the key figures were for the Allies and the Central Powers, how devastation spread on all fronts and the impact of the war on the lives of everyone. It's packed with supporting material in the form of maps, infographics and photos and gives a highly readable and memorable overview which makes a complex topic easy to understand with plenty of supporting material.

Taking the war year by year adds a further level of coherence which is then enhanced by the timeline that features as each new chapter (or year) opens. Ferelith Hordon Books for Keeps
