My Story: Stories of the First World War

The war made real in children’s voices. Twelve kids. Twelve world-shaking stories. Feel every moment. See a conflict that shook history through the eyes of twelve young people, from newly recruited soldiers at the front to children helping the war effort at home. You’ll travel from the Home Front to the battlefield trenches, and from the horrors of Gallipoli to the naval battle of Jutland. War fiction at its powerful best, from the masterful Jim Eldridge.
