This is my favorite horrible history

Boys dream of war and men dream of peace. Through humor and quirky facts the horror of the First World War and the pointlessness of it is brought home to young children

Utterly speechless! Listen!!

I'd done all the books except this and WW2 and where silly and funny until this one... it was heart wrenching in place and shown warm and laughter between the soldiers but was, throughout whole the book, respectful.
