Description

New York Times Bestseller

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
