Product description

From the terror of the trenches to the beaches of Gallipoli, this fact and photo-packed book tells the story of Britain during the First World War. It was known as the Great War, the War to End All Wars – the first in human history to reach every corner of the globe. Boys as young as thirteen joined the army, eager to fight in what they thought would be a grand adventure. Instead, they found themselves locked into a four-year conflict that destroyed nations, cost millions of lives, and shocked the public with the sheer scale and ferocity of its slaughter. Even though Britain won the war, few today celebrate it as a glorious victory. From events on the battlefield to changes in domestic life at home, discover how the horror of this global war has had a lasting impact ever since.
