Product description

What’s the worst place in the whole world? A trench full of freezing mud, rats, bullets – and exploding shells going up in your face. And in World War One, ‘the war to end all wars’, that’s exactly where most of Britain’s bonny soldiers were. So hold on to your stomach and get ready to discover all the dreadful and disgusting hardships that the brave soldiers endured. The trenches were terrifying. The mud could murder you. The rats were ravenous, there were legions of lice, and the food was utterly foul. And if you managed to survive all that, there were tanks and cannons and bayonets too…

Mud. Blood. Barbed wire and bullets. Would YOU have survived? If you want the horrid facts, dig in!
