itroduction to the first world war
I think this book is a one that offers interesting facts, maps and pictures for anyone who is starting off learning about WW1 or would like to find out more detail. It also is easily understandable for all ages. My Mum and Dad also have learned things about the First World War from this book as well. So, I would definitely recommend it to young or old.
