This isn't a book I typically read, but it's Middle Grade and the pictures were so tempting I just couldn't resist. As an American, my knowledge of the war- WWI- is limited to a chapter in a book in high school starting with when the USA entered the war. I never really knew why the other countries were fighting or what was going on, I just knew why we entered the war. But this short book gives a brief history of the complete war, starting with alliances and going all through to the trenches and rats the size of cats to the bloodiest battles and the disgruntled winners. (If there really are winners in a war.) I learned a lot in this short book. It wasn't like reading- more like bullet points with information and pictures to illustrate.
I really recommend this to reluctant readers, to kids as an introduction to history, and to brush up on your history. I enjoyed it so much I think I might check out some of the other ones.
