Charlie's War Illustrated: Remembering World War One

Written by Mick Manning, Brita Granstrom

Charlie's War Illustrated: Remembering World War One Synopsis

Mick Manning's grandfather joined the army in 1914 and served right through World War One. Fighting in the artillery on the front line in Egypt, Palestine and France, Charlie lived to tell his tale. Here Mick and Brita tell us about Charlie's War, illustrating his story with stunning artwork, period scraps and artefacts. They movingly bring alive for children the 'war to end all wars', from the trenches and the guns to the friendships and songs the soliders shared.
