  1. Nick S. Says:

    Summary: This book begins with the sinking of the Lusitania, a British passenger liner, by a German U-boat torpedo which resulted in nearly 1,200 killed, among those people, Americans. Soon after, Archduke Francis Ferdinand was assassinated which worried Europeans of Germany’s expanding powers. This was the spark that lit the First World War. America had decided that they would no longer have diplomatic relations with Germany and on April 5th, 1917, America joins the war force under the command of Woodrow Wilson. With many countries surrendering, the U.S. gains victory against Germany and their allies, Hungary, Turkey, and Bulgaria. The War ended in Armistice, a peace treaty, on November 11, 1918.

    Evaluation: Zachary Kent does a great job at illustrating the events of WWI and helping his readers understand the cause and effects of this war. His inclusion of historical artifacts- pictures, propaganda- help to bring the events to life.

    Recommendations: World War II in Europe by Zachary Kent, World War II in the Pacific by Zachary Kent
