Both beautiful and heartbreakingly sad, this lavishly illustrated story reminds us of how similar we all are and in doing so brings home the deep tragedy of war. A fantastic story just a shame it had to be so true Combined with elements of non fiction this book would make a fantastic resource in a classroom of learners studying the World Wars Displaying the highs and lows of the life of a soldier, you are really able to connect with their story A great recommendation Mat, was a pleasure to read This book is an illustrated book for children The story happened in 1914 during the first world war It deals with a group of four young boys who dreamt of becoming professional football players and to join the national soccer team but they were enlisted and had to fight in France..This book is very interesting because it shows how humans can be nice despite the horror of the WAR What a nice Book This historical fiction book follows the journey of four young friends who join the British Army during World War I Throughout the book, it provides real images of propaganda during this time, trench life, No Man s Land, war traditions, and the effects of the war on civilians This book would be a wonderful addition to a text set that focuses on the perspectives of World War I This book promotes all kinds of emotions and is sure to make you reflect on the bravery of our soldiers in the war A great mix of cartoon pictures and real propaganda from the war time War Game by Michael Foreman depicts the spontaneous truce that took place on Christmas Day, 1914 on the Western front during the Great War This beautifully illustrated book begins with 4 young boys playing soccer in Suffolk They are craving some adventure, an opportunity to travel and so decide to join the fight with the assumption they will be home before Christmas The author beautifully portrays the innocence of these young boys on their first London bus driving across the French countryside through the ruins of their devastated surroundings when we see them compare the flares used to illuminate the enemy to fireworks The four boys enter the trenches and are quickly moved to the front line Once filled with enthusiasm, the boys are now faced with gunfire, freezing winter conditions and thoughts of home Christmas Day sees a welcome truce between the two sides and the enemy is humanised as the German front line emerge from the trenches to partake in a friendly game of soccer As they return to their trenches Christmas wishes are swapped This jovial atmosphere is quickly quashed when the Germans are replaced with Prussian soldiers and a heavy gunfire attack follows During a counter attack Will, one of the boys is shot and dies in No Mans Land Foreman accurately depicts the brutality of war and creates empathy within the reader for all sides involved Throughout the book he includes actual war propaganda, popular at the time to encourage men to enlist This book could of course be used cross curricularly in History as his writing and watercolour illustrations are immensely detailed, depicting the landscape, uniforms, aircrafts, riffles and trenches I think this book would certainly develop a child s curiosity and imagination and perhaps even lead to discussions over the issue of war and indeed be useful in creative writing I would suggest this book for Year 6 due to difficult vocabulary pertaining to war which students may not be familiar with It is a beautiful book and I would highly recommend it for students. This is fantastic, but it is a year jerker.
