    eBook JimMurphy ↠ Truce eBook å ↠ truce mobile, Truce PDFEPUBWhile this book is in the Juvenile section of the library I have to say it's the best book on WWI or any war that I've ever read The causes and conseuences of WWI are so much clearer to me; I could probably even carry on a lengthy discussion about it I have read textbook chapters about WWI both in high school and college and once I started this text I felt like I didn't know a THING about it So

    eBook JimMurphy ↠ Truce eBook å ↠ truce mobile, Truce PDFEPUB Truce isn't primarily a book about World War I As is often the case in Jim Murphy's books Truce explains the essential facts that led to the war but then zeroes in on one unusual section of the war that was strikingly memorable and makes it the focus of the book In this case the unusual occurrence is the almost unexplainably widespread truce between the British and German soldiers which took place in the battle zone of the Western Front on Christmas Eve and Day of 1914 I knew a fair amount about World War I before reading this book but reacuainting myself with the facts of how it started euipped me with a lot of new information To think that a war ending with the worldwide deaths of eight million soldiers and twenty one million suffering ghastly wounds was based on a lack

    eBook JimMurphy ↠ Truce eBook å ↠ truce mobile, Truce PDFEPUBReading a nonfiction book when you’re already familiar with much of the content can sometimes grate I found the manner in which Murphy presented the subject to be engaging and informative Although there were some points where I felt facts were simplified in ways that left out an important nuance of the events in general the author presents a balanced depiction of the pressures and prejudices working against Europe at the time The facts are not dumbed down but some are slightly simplified for young readers Although by necessity for a writer working in English many of his original sources are British soldiers he is careful to also include the words of French and G

    eBook JimMurphy ↠ Truce eBook å ↠ truce mobile, Truce PDFEPUBTruce is a wonderful book that not only tells the story of the unofficial Christmas Truce of 1914 during World War I but also gives a coherent thorough history of the events leading up to the hostilities and just what those terrible first months of war was like in the trenches The fact is that most of us don't really remember World War I from our high school history days And I know I never learned that World War I could have and almost was prevented So I can honestly say that I relearned a lot reading Truce Jim Murphy has a real gift for explaining history in his well researched totally accessible book about how the enemy soldiers stopped fighting in the middle of a war and celebrated Christmas together And as he points out the truce wasn't uite as spontaneous as we have been led to believe Murphy explains that there are two sides to trench warfare the fighting side and the boring side The fighting side was basically barbaric with soldiers charging across a No Man

    eBook JimMurphy ↠ Truce eBook å ↠ truce mobile, Truce PDFEPUBI know I'm too liberal with my 5 star ratings but boy have I been reading some good stuff lately This was unintentionally the perfect nonfiction follow up to Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld Westerfeld's book though it was an alternate history still taught me about what set off World War I than I remember learning in school and Murphy's book fleshes out the reality magnificently with maps photos drawings first person uotes a timeline notes sources additional resources and index And the main point? The war really didn't have to happen at all Misunderstandings arrogance and stubbornness were the culprits than anything else Extremely readable and educational; highly recommended for both history and Christmas buffs Yes I cried over th
