Ten stories of the First World War from people who lived through it, published in association with Imperial War Museums. Eye-witness accounts of some of World War One's most important events, from the epic naval battle of Jutland to the strange Christmas truce of 1914, are illustrated with maps and line drawings.
Epic encounters between titanic warships, battles involving thousands of men, and duels between lone snipers facing almost certain death are just some of the dramatic tales in this gripping collection of stories from the Second World War. This is one of three books included in a special boxset from Usborne called True Stories of the Second World War published in association with the Imperial War Museum to mark the 70th Anniversary of D-Day. You may also be interested in the companion books of this series, The Blitz and D-Day.
