We were looking for a book about World War I that gave some information without going into too many gory details. This DK Eyewitness book fits the bill. Students will read about life in the trenches, communication, enlisting, women at war, zeppelins, espionage, the cost of the war, and more. Battles are mentioned, but few are detailed. The illustrations speak a thousand words, so your student is sure to understand the tremendous cost of the Great War.
