Solid drawings but frustrating because this provides very little context about the battles depicted. Even if this was for middle grade readers, it presents confusing history about what is a fascinating period that set up much of modern Middle Eastern politics.

I stumbled across this book the other day in a library branch that I don't often visit. As a comic geek, a homeschooling dad, and a person with a passionate interest in the Great War - an historical comic for kids about the Great War seemed right up my alley!

I was back and forth about whether to give this two or three stars - but then decided, for what it was, it was pretty okay.

What the book is is a book for younger readers containing three short comics stories about incidents that took place

Part of a series of graphic "novels" that serve as a good introduction to history. The art is decent, the stories (there are typically three vignettes per slim, full-color volume)well-told and not-too-confusing -- and there in material that sets it up and follows it up well-enough to eliminate any short-term confusion.

Each volume has a glossary that helps the young reader.

Intended for young teens.
