The great war : stories inspired by items from the First World War( Recording )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a powerful collection, eleven internationally acclaimed fiction writers draw on personal objects to bring the First World War to life for readers of all ages. A toy soldier. A butter dish. A compass. Mundane objects, perhaps, but to the remarkable authors in this collection, artifacts such as these have inspired stories that go to the heart of the human experience of World War I. Each author was invited to choose an object that had a connection to the war - a writing kit for David Almond, a helmet for Michael Morpurgo - and use it as the inspiration for an original short story. What results is an extraordinary collection. A blend of fiction and real-life events, this unique anthology provides young readers with a personal window into the Great War and the people affected by it, and serves as an invaluable resource for families and teachers alike
