Product description

Lots of things are terrible. Lumpy custard. Leaky shoes. Missing the last bus home. But all those awful things pale beside the terrible trenches of the First World War: so horrific that 100 years later, people still shudder at the thought of them. Revolting rations, shocking shells, traumatic toilets, lousy lice, grisly gangrene: soldiers in the trenches had to endure them all. Imagine living and fighting in a stinky, wet hole in the ground, while bullets zinged above your head and cannons bombarded your hidey-hole. No book can describe that kind of horror, but this book gets pretty close. It’s crammed with fold-out features, yucky facts, lousy letters, songs, timelines and quizzes that bring the trenches to life in Terry Deary’s classic Horrible style.

  • A fascinating novelty book from this best-loved series
  • Packed with fold-outs, letters, pamplets and much more
  • Published to mark the centenary of the end of World War I
  • By the classic dream team of Terry Deary and Martin Brown

Not suitable for children under 3 years of age. Small parts.
