World War I set the tone for the 20th century and introduced a new type of warfare: global, mechanical, and brutal. Nathan Hale has gathered some of the most fascinating true-life tales from the war and given them his inimitable Hazardous Tales twist. Easy to understand, funny, informative, and lively, this series is the best way to be introduced to some of the most well-known battles (and little-known secrets) of the infamous war.Praise for Nathan Hale's Hazardous Tales "Students bored to death by textbook descriptions of WWI battle maneuvers should be engaged by this entertaining, educational glimpse at world history." --Booklist "A mixture of textbook and slapstick, this essential read makes history come alive in a way that is relevant to modern-day life and kids." --School Library Journal

Nathan Hale provides an overview to the causes and dynamics of World War I that streamlines an abundance of information into an engrossing story. This book uses historical facts, visual aids and humor to educate readers both young and old. Hale’s stylized drawings represent each country as different animals and don’t come across as cartoony but rather help to illustrate the seriousness of the subject matter. This book is an excellent entry point for readers wanting to learn about WWI but are easily bored with traditional history textbooks.

Packed a lot of stuff on a small book by limiting to mostly Western Front, few sea battles, & some air battles. United States as timid rabbits instead of proud eagle due to overlap funny. Ditto two shell shocked ,er, PTSD sidekicks wanting an innocent safe story after experiencing horrors of war. Author described the changes in war equipment & borders as German Empire, Austria-Hungary Empire, Ottoman Empire & Russian Empire became no more.
