True Stories of the Civil War
Experience the horrors of the Civil War through the stories of the people who lived through it. From the first shots on Fort Sumter to the surrender at Appomattox, True Stories of the Civil War will give your child a visual look at the war that nearly tore our nation apart. Written and illustrated in an engaging graphic-novel style, True Stories of the Civil War also includes a brief summary of the war, a timeline, and a map.

True Stories of World War I
During World War I, known as the Great War, many soldiers kept journals about their experiences. True Stories of World War I encapsulates six of them, including Alvin York and the Red Baron. Your child will learn of the horror of gas warfare and the tragic sinking of the Lusitania. Written and illustrated in an engaging graphic-novel style, True Stories of the World War I also includes a brief summary of the war, a timeline, and a map.

True Stories of World War II
Using the unique accounts taken from actual diaries and letters, True Stories of World War II tells the stories of five men and women who fought for their countries during World War II. From the Bataan Death March to the sinking of the USS Indianapolis, this graphic novel will open your child’s eyes to the horrors of a war that can never be repeated. It also includes a brief summary of the war, a timeline, and a map.

Valuable Information

My 9yo loves all the graphic novels from Timberdoodle and his grandparents gave him this set at Christmas. He attends public school and I don’t always trust the accuracy of what he is learning about history, specifically past wars, so I’ve been very thankful for these books!

Great option

These are a great option for children who aren’t really into reading. The graphic novel format makes it much more interesting and fun for them. My son really enjoys these!

Great history addition!

My daughter (4th grade) and even my son (5th grade) love graphic novels. I love how these give them an extra addition to supplement their learning. They love reading each war graphic novel. These are especially great if you have a visual learner and to get them excited about their history lesson.

Excellent

I found my son reading these before school started. The limited number of pages makes these perfect for 20 minute "free read" times.

Great for reluctant readers

I never thought I would see the day that my reluctant reader would enjoy a book on his own... But these graphic novels are amazing! He loves learning in a fun way, the text isn't daunting or dry and boring, I will be buying some more of these for friends with reluctant readers!
