Baker & Taylor
At the beginning of World War I, Frank, a Canadian, finds himself in the front line trenches soon after enlisting, and hearing the German soldiers talking he realizes they are just like him with homes and families.

Perseus Publishing
In August 1914, when war breaks out in Europe, Canadians rush to join the army to fight with the Allies, expecting to be home by Christmas. Everyone thinks the war will be over in a few months. But by the time the war ends in 1918, nearly 10 million soldiers and 13 million civilians are dead. The especially brutal conditions the soldiers face are portrayed in a spare, straightforward style that neither glorifies war nor dwells on the horror. No one reading this book will come away with anything other than sorrow for the tragedy and futility of ?the war to end all wars.” Debon’s well-researched and realistic illustrations add a wealth of texture and detail to this story.

I discovered this book years ago when I was on the hunt for a book to help a young person I know understand why we remember, how hard it was, and still is to be a solider, and that it is a real thing. We continue to take it out as my children grow and change. The see different things in this at every age.
