The Stunning Battles of World War I Deliver an Unforgettable Journey into Military History.
"Easy-to-read eye-opener into 'The War to End War'... Five stars out of five." — #1 Hall of Fame reviewer
Known as "The Great War" due to its massive loss of life, WWI marked a monumental shift in military campaigns, leadership, tactics, and strategies. The Allies — with the help of the US military — eventually defeated the Axis powers, but World War I also tragically set the stage for World War II.
"This book explains things very well. It covers the most important battles that most people don't know about. I highly recommend this book if you are learning about WW1." -- 5 stars, Kyle
Why did this monumental war happen? Who started it? Who ended it? Boys will find out in Great Battles for Boys: World War I. They'll also learn about then-new fighting innovations such as airplanes and tanks.
Among the unforgettable battles:
Battle of Tannenberg: Outnumbered German soldiers plan a sneak attack that destroys Russian forces and leads to the capture of 150,000 prisoners of war.
Battle of the Somme: Among military history’s worst follies, this battle ended with more than one million casualties—while achieving almost no gains for either side.
Battle of Cantigny: A little-known battle in which late-arriving and inexperienced American forces fought on the Western Front and proved ready to win.
