Horrible Histories: Frightful First World War

The classic bestseller – now with a nastier new look! No more boring nice-guy nonsense about history. It’s time to learn it the horrible way. And there’s nothing more horrible than the First World War: a global conflict so terrible and deadly it killed over 20 million people. (Told you it was nasty.) Soldiers drowning in mud. Pilots blown out of the sky. The facts in here are yuckier than ever. But if you like fat kings, dead horses, stinky socks, poison gas (same thing, right?) or sniffing your own pee, you’ve come to the right book…
