From the creators of the award-winning World in Infographics series, History in Infographics: First World War provides a fascinating insight into this world-changing war

History in Infographics: The First World War helps children get to grips with the immense scale of the First World War. Find out the size of each country's army, see how many km of trenches there were, learn about the average age of soldiers and the amount of underage soldiers fighting, how many people were taken prisoner, how many zeppelins were built, how big the tanks were, what were the major battles and much, much more.

History in Infographics helps children to visualise facts and statistics using a clever and appealing mix of graphics and numbers. The colourful, high-impact design will appeal to a wide range of children, from visual learners to struggling readers, capturing and then holding their attention. Infographics are a really exciting, different way to learn about core topics, and are ideal for fact-hungry children, revision work, and to improve the quality of presentations.

Ideal for children aged 9+, and fact and history lovers of all ages
