True Stories of the First World War is a collection of short stories about World War One and the people that fought it. This is a paperback of about 140  pages.

This book tells about the war by using several short stories. Some of the topics it covers include the Battle of the Somme, Jutland, the first use of Zeppelins,  and the rebellion by French soldiers in 1917. Each story provides enough flesh that the reader gets the main point without providing overwhelming detail. The stories are written in a style that is perfect for young readers - short and  with simple language. Throughout the book are black and white illustrations that demonstrate the military technology of the era.

Although it has been ninety years since the end of this conflict, the stories  in this collection are told in a personal manner that makes you feel as if you  can hear the individuals telling their tales. The short duration of the stories  and the language used are ideal for young readers. Anybody wanting to get an  idea of what people felt that were involved in this conflict will find these  stories interesting.
