World War I
Scottish Tales of AdventureeBook - 2014
Eight true stories from the battlefields of the First World War color the pages of this gripping collection. Bringing to life a variety of Scottish war stories from the Western Front, Gallipoli, and Africa, this book recounts the terrible struggle for survival in muddy trenches where young soldiers dodged bullets, poison gas, and explosive shells while waiting for the order to go over the top and face the enemy. Young readers will be as informed as they are inspired by the thrills and spills of the Scottish Royal Flying Corp, where airmen flew daring reconnaissance missions under heavy fire, and brave doctors and nurses treated the wounded in makeshift wards in tents amid the bombs and gunfire. These stories of excitement, heartache, heroism, and victory are all based on personal diaries, letters, and memoirs.
