Product Description

The First World War was a war fought on a global scale: a war so terrible and deadly that they called it ‘the war to end all wars’. From foot soldiers drowning in mud to fighter pilots being blown out of the sky, it was absolutely hideous from start to finish. So if you like your history horrible, this is the book for you! Find out:

  • What the “Fat King” did with food scraps and dead horses
  • How sniffing your own pee could save your life in a gas attack
  • Why a pair of old socks gave away top German secrets

Get all the frightful facts about the First World War – with all the gore and more!
