The Split History of World War I
A Perspectives Flip Book
by Michael Burgan
Tensions have been brewing in Europe for years. Finally the 1914 assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria-Hungary sets off four bloody years of war that eventually involved the entire world, including the United States. It will be called the “war to end all wars." Experience it from two opposing perspectives.
Perspectives Flip Books are like two books in one: start from one end and immerse yourself in one viewpoint on a major historical event. Then flip it over and immerse yourself in another, very different viewpoint. Readers will come away with deeper understanding of events and history's many perspectives.
Paperback, 64 pages
