Discover legendary commanders, tremendous fights, elite soldiers, and courageous individuals whose deeds truly made the difference in this jaw-dropping guide to the biggest war the world has ever seen. History buff and popular blogger Ben Thompson’s extensive research and irresistible storytelling put readers right in the middle of the action in this unforgettable installment in the Guts & Glory series!
Why we like it: Lot of fun historical facts. Very accessible language for young readers, especially boys. The narrative style sucks readers into the historical events. (Personally, I feel it’s better as a book so that readers can see photographs, etc. It’s also hard to do a close reading with audiobooks.)
