From the bestselling author of the hugely successful Horrible Histories, The War Game is full of fascinating tales that bring the war to life and are perfect reads for children new to the topic.

Flanders, 1914. The German and British soldiers in the trenches make an unofficial Christmas truce, with carols and a football match. They hear the enemy sing and watch them place Christmas trees in the trenches opposite. They begin to shout greetings and end up playing an international football match. They see the enemy as vulnerable humans and the officers are furious. Further unofficial truces are banned and the war continues with bullets instead of footballs. But it's a memory that stays with young Albert long after the war.
