This Month's Book
Treaties, Trenches, Mud, and Blood
By Nathan Hale
In 1914, the world’s biggest countries (and some of its smallest, too) were gearing up for a massive fight. Land, history, geography — each country came to war for different reasons and with different resources. But most ended up the same: sending their young men to fight for their lives in the mud, on the sea, and in the air, in a conflict that would eventually claim more than 9 million lives.
Nathan Hale’s Hazardous Tales are graphic novels that tell the thrilling, shocking, gruesome, and TRUE stories of American history.
