    Kindle Truce eBook ✓ ¶ bricksnboho.co.uk ¶ truce kindle, Truce PDF/EPUBIf your history classes in school were anything like mine then this is how a typical year would go Lots of Revolutionary War lots of Civil War oh no it's almost the end of the year so let's just skip to WWII and finally a brief smattering of Vietnam WWI got the short end of the stick year after year after year when I was growing up In fact by the time I graduated from high school I associated only a couple vague images with it mustard gas red poppies and All uiet On The Western Front Now mine was a particularly silly education but I worry about kids today Surely I'm not the only person who went through this So what do you hand a ten year old who wants a really good book on WWI and also wants it to explain how it happen

    Kindle Truce eBook ✓ ¶ bricksnboho.co.uk ¶ truce kindle, Truce PDF/EPUBWhile this book is in the Juvenile section of the library I have to say it's the best book on WWI or any war that I've ever read The causes and conseuences of WWI are so much clearer to me; I could probably even carry on a lengthy discussion about it I have read textbook chapters about WWI both in high school and college and once I started this text I felt like I didn't know a THING about it So I do recommend this to adults who love history but don't necessarily love reading adult nonfiction books about history As for the targeted audience this book will be just right for someone who is at a solid middle school reading level The vocabulary is 7 9th grade according to Oxford Sadlier and it is extremely well written and totally fascinating The reader learns how the public was misled to support the war how the leaders blundered here and there how the war defied expectations and how it led to trench warfare what the Western Front was actually like and how the miracu

    Kindle Truce eBook ✓ ¶ bricksnboho.co.uk ¶ truce kindle, Truce PDF/EPUB Truce isn't primarily a book about World War I As is often the case in Jim Murphy's books Truce explains the essential facts that led to the war but then zeroes in on one unusual section of the war that was strikingly memorable and makes it the focus of the book In this case the unusual occurrence is the almost unexplainably widespread truce between the British an

    Kindle Truce eBook ✓ ¶ bricksnboho.co.uk ¶ truce kindle, Truce PDF/EPUBReading a nonfiction book when you’re already familiar with much of the content can sometimes grate I found the manner in which Murphy presented the subject to be engaging and informative Although there were some points where I felt facts were simplified in ways that left out an important nuance of the events in general the author presents a balanced depiction of the pressures and prejudices working against Europe at the time The facts are not dumbed down but some are slightly simplified for young readers Although by necessity for a writer working in English many of his original sources are British soldiers he is careful to also include the words of French and German soldiers in both his explanations of the early day

    Kindle Truce eBook ✓ ¶ bricksnboho.co.uk ¶ truce kindle, Truce PDF/EPUBTruce is a wonderful book that not only tells the story of the unofficial Christmas Truce of 1914 during World War I but also gives a coherent thorough history of the events leading up to the hostilities and just what those terrible first months of war was like in the trenches The fact is that most of us don't really remember World War I from our high school history days And I know I never learned that World War I could have and almost was prevented So I can honestly say that I relearned a lot reading Truce Jim Murphy has a real gift for explaini
