Great Battles for Boys takes kids to the front lines of iconic battles. In this volume of the popular history series, find out which strategies, weapons, and military leaders won – or lost – these famous American fights. And none of it's boring. Among the dozen battles covered here: Tannenburg: outnumbered German soldiers pull a sneak attack & destroy Russian forces, capturing 150,000 prisoners of war, Somme: Among military history's worst follies, this battle ended with more than one million casualties – and yet achieved almost nothing for either the Allies or the Central Powers. Cantigny: A little-known battle that proved late-arriving and novice American forces came to the Western Front to win this long-suffering war. Other chapters cover WWI's most fascinating figures, such as Lawrence of Arabia, Sergeant York, and the Harlem Hellfighters. Listeners also gain an understanding of the world events shaped by this monumental conflict, including the Russian Revolution of 1917. If your child likes action-packed accounts, authentic details, and short but exciting chapters, then they'll love this audiobook. And they'll never hear history as boring again!
