    The war to end all wars : World War I

    Freedman, Russell.

    The Great War was suppose to be the war to end war forever. It was brutal, deadly, and unforgettable. The Great War changed the way war was fought when it employed modern weapons, like tanks, long range artillery, trench warfare and poisonous gas. Battles would be fought on land, sea and in the air with newly designed bomber planes. Over 20 million people died, many empires collapsed, revolutions were fought, famine was widespread and the world map was redrawn. Unfortunately World War I was a precursor and a cause of World War II — causing the Great War to be forever called World War I, the first of far too many to follow.

While others see his strangeness, Annabelle sees only kindness, and soon must find the courage to stand as a lone voice of justice as tensions mount.

    "Patryk and Jurek are as much friends as rivals in the small Russian-occupied Polish village where they live. When, in August 1914, Patryk finds an old button on the forest floor, Jurek becomes wildly jealous. Not long after, World War I comes to Poland, bringing one invading army after another to the village. Jurek devises an exciting dare among the seven boys in their pack: whoever steals the best military button will be Button King. The boys agree. The contest is on. The competition escalates from stealing uniform buttons on a wash line to looting the bodies of dead soldiers to setting up an ambush. Leading the charge is Jurek, who will do anything to be Button King. It's only Patryk who tries to stop Jurek's increasingly dangerous game before it leads to deadly consequences"--Provided by publisher.
