Giorello, Joe. (Author). Giorello, Sibella, (author.).


"In this installment of the bestselling history series, young readers will learn about World War I's major battles, leaders, tactics and modern inventions such as airplanes and tanks that were crucial to The Great Warnamed not because the conflict was so good, but because its losses were so devastating. It's an unforgettable journey into history. Among the battles covered are Battle of Tannenberg, Battle of the Somme, and Battle of Cantigny. Other chapters cover WWIs most fascinating figures, such as Lawrence of Arabia, Sergeant York, and the Harlem Hellfighters. Boys will also gain an understanding of the world events shaped by this monumental conflict, including the Russian Revolution of 1917. Filled with historic photographs, maps, and notable biographies of ordinary soldiers who accomplished extraordinary feats against all odds, Great Battles for Boys: WWI explains the weapons, tactics, and strategies that helped the Allies topple the Central Powers. Each chapter also concludes with suggestions for further age-appropriate books, internet sites, and movies that the whole family can watch together."--Back cover.
