Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Child's Perspective of WW I It is a look at world war one from a younger sibling's perspective. The author makes it a little more real by mentioning an actual author who lived during the Great War. She shows how families coped with the death of loved ones and the survivors of the war who suffered from various physical and psychological injuries. It brings history to life and touches people in ways history books can never do.
