The First World War was “total war” on an unprecedented scale. Industrialised nations engaged in mechanised warfare, deploying new and terrifying weapons: airplanes, tanks, zeppelins, giant warships, and poison gas. Using archival photos, maps, and drawings, this fact-packed book explains to children what happened and why, and tells the human stories in a way that brings history vividly to life.
