ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- A companion book to the impressive My Gallipoli, this presents an array of characters remembering the day that Armistice was declared - and the time afterwards. A powerful book as it retells the many sides and effects of the end of war, from military (ordinary soldiers and commanders both) and civilian perspectives. Includes maps and factual details, and with striking illustrations by David Kennett. Thought-provoking commemoration of the centenary of the end of WW1, particularly valuable in  engendering discussion and reflection for older readers. Lindy Jones

-----

In this companion to the award-winning, My Gallipoli, many voices will recall the day the Great War ended and the monthsthat followed before peace rang out around the world.

On 11 November 1918, after four years of fighting, the Allied powers signed an agreement with Germany to end the Great War and to begin peace negotiations. The armistice, as it was known, took effect on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month. But it would take more than seven months before peace would finally be declared at Versailles on 28 June 1919. The Great War was over. But the world as it had been known was changed forever.

In this book, many voices recall the day the war ended,and the months that followed before peace rang out around the world. Armistice will bring these stories to life and is published to commemorate the 100th anniversary since the fighting stopped.
