Eight true stories from the battlefields of the First World War color the pages of this gripping collection. Bringing to life a variety of Scottish war stories from the Western Front, Gallipoli, and Africa, this book recounts the terrible struggle for survival in muddy trenches where young soldiers dodged bullets, poison gas, and explosive shells while waiting for the order to go over the top and face the enemy. Young readers will be as informed as they are inspired by the thrills and spills of the Scottish Royal Flying Corp, where airmen flew daring reconnaissance missions under heavy fire, and brave doctors and nurses treated the wounded in makeshift wards in tents amid the bombs and gunfire. These stories of excitement, heartache, heroism, and victory are all based on personal diaries, letters, and memoirs.

Remembering the Fallen of the First World War takes a fascinating and detailed look at how servicemen killed during the First World War were commemorated. Beginning during the war itself, the book investigates the options available at the time - repatriation and normal burial were intially considered, but the sheer number of the dead precluded this, so cemeteries close the battlefields became the only realistic option. The book chronicles the work of Sir Fabian Ware and the Imperial (now Commonwealth) War Graves Commission in setting up permanent and beautifully maintained cemeteries after the war as well as local war memorials, plaques in churches, books of remembrance and so forth. The book also includes poetry written and artwork created to honour the fallen, and offers advice on how young readers can find their ancestors' war graves. A must have book on World War One for ages 11 and up.

Written by the son of a career officer, this book explores the branches of the Armed Services and speaks from the heart about the honor, privileges and sacrifices of military families everywhere. Children will discover why drill sergeants have to be so tough, what it means to be patriotic and why we need Special Forces such as the Navy SEALS, the Green Berets and the Army Rangers. H is for Honor also explains why the annual Army/Navy football game is more than just a game, how much letters from home mean to soldiers, how often military families have to move and what life on base is like. With an underlying message of courage and commitment that every child can relate to, the book will be especially meaningful to those whose parents, siblings or other relatives serve in the Armed Forces.
