Product description

The horrible book to go with the TV series!

The First World War was a war fought on a global scale: a war so terrible and deadly that they called it “the war to end all wars”. From foot soldiers drowning in mud to fighter pilots being blown out of the sky, it was absolutely hideous from start to finish. So if you like your history horrible, this is the book for you! Find out:

  • What the ‘Fat King’ did with food scraps and dead horses
  • How sniffing your own pee could save your life in a gas attack
  • Why a pair of old socks gave away top German secrets

Get all the frightful facts about the First World War – with all the gore and more!

    Terry Deary has made a brilliant, educational set of books! They teach you all about how the people of the past live! I would recommend an age range of 8-12 for this book
