Stories of the First World War (My Story)

Paperback – by Jim Eldridge (Author)

6 Copies (RRP £7.99 (£47.94))

The story of the war of 1914-1918 told through the experiences of twelve children and young people. From the efforts on the Home Front in both Britain and Germany, to the young soldiers in the trenches at the Western Front and from the horrors of Gallipoli to the naval battle of Jutland.

War Game: Village Green to No-Man's-Land - the story of the First World War Christmas Day truce of 1914

Walter Tull's Scrapbook 

Paperback - by Michaela Morgan

6 Copies (RRP 6.99 (£41.94))

The inspirational true story of Walter Tull’s life is vividly reimagined here in scrapbook form, drawing on photographs, documents and records of his life. Born in Kent, in 1888, Walter Tull became not just the first black British professional outfield football player – for Tottenham Hotspur and Northampton Town - but also the first black officer in the British Army.

His leadership and courage in the trenches of the First World War won him a recommendation for a Military Cross that was never awarded because of his skin colour.

His story takes the reader from his childhood in an orphanage, through his footballing years, to his eventual tragic death, aged 29, on the Somme. His legacy lives on.

The First World War

Hardcover 

In 1914, the murder of Archduke Franz Ferdinand sparked one of the most destructive conflicts the world had ever seen. This is the story of the First World War, and the people who lived and died fighting in it. It is a narrative account of WWI, written specially for children who are ready to tackle longer and more complex subjects. It is part of the Usborne Reading Programme developed with reading experts at the University of Roehampton.
