Product description

What was the First World War really like? Step into the boots of 14-year-old soldier James Marchbank and find out.

Inspired by the real-life diary of a Scottish boy soldier, each easy-to-read chapter mixes James’s story with timelines, letters, diagrams and illustrations to create a fact-tastic account of the First World War, which is both fun and emotionally engaging for younger readers.

Why was rat hunting a popular hobby in the trenches? How did parachuting pigeons help win the war? Why would a really good friend rub whale oil on your feet? What did it feel like to be a teenager at war?

Take a journey through time and discover all the most important and incredible bits of the First World War.

A Secret Diary of the First World War is the first in a new brilliant series, which blends together intriguing facts and fascinating fiction to bring the most exciting, gruesome and crucial moments of Scottish history alive for young readers.
