Product description

Fatter. Funnier. And with bigger pics. A new chunky edition: the same historical splattering of laughter, blood and gore. One hundred years since the First World War was fought. The perfect time to get the horrible lowdown. And yes, we do mean HORRIBLE. The First World War was so terrible and deadly that they called it ‘the war to end all wars’. From soldiers drowning in mud to pilots being blown out of the sky, it was ferociously foul from start to finish. But if you like fat kings, dead horses, breathing poisonous gas or sniffing your own pee, you’ve come to the right book…
