This book explains how the war started, what it was about and who it involved. It describes the major battles and looks at what life was like for the soldiers in the trenches, the pilots in the air, the sailors at sea and the civilians back home.

It is told from a British perspective, which this American found refreshing. It's also aimed at 10-15 year olds.
