Description

World War I set the tone for the 20th century and introduced a new type of warfare: global, mechanical, and brutal. Nathan Hale has gathered some of the most fascinating true-life tales from the war and given them his inimitable Hazardous Tales twist. Easy to understand, funny, informative, and lively, this series is the best way to be introduced to some of the most well-known battles (and little-known secrets) of the infamous war.

Praise for Nathan Hale's Hazardous Tales
"Students bored to death by textbook descriptions of WWI battle maneuvers should be engaged by this entertaining, educational glimpse at world history."
--Booklist

"
A mixture of textbook and slapstick, this essential read makes history come alive in a way that is relevant to modern-day life and kids."
--School Library Journal

    I love this series because I love history, especially about wars, and I like the real quotes and real events mixed with some light comedy. I wish I had the money for the next book because I have read all but the last one.

    Anyone who’s become accustomed to Nathan Hale’s savvy mix of humorous storytelling, facts, and concise explanations will be thoroughly impressed by the scope of information about WW1 conveyed in this graphic novel. In true Hale fashion, he shows the utmost respect for a young audience. Representing countries with animals brings clarity to a seemingly endless series of players and conflicts (but not before apologizing to historians first). While Hale’s previous works have succeeded due to his ability at weaving together fascinating threads out of complex periods in history, Treaties, Trenches… takes an overarching look at the entire war. Readers will be shocked time and time again as the devastation escalates, which Hale takes care to draw extra attention to through his periodic representation of Ares growing in strength. As with his other graphic novels, this latest volume is a shining example of how a great storyteller can convey a powerful sense of historical significance through visuals, comedy, and context.
