Topics covered in this comic book

World War 1 is one of the least-understood events in United States history. It’s easy to see why: unlike the dynamic World War II, this earlier global conflict has little battlefield movement and no clear moral narrative. Who really won? Who really lost? This conflict radically changed the world, but the years between 1870 and 1929 are a blur to most Americans. This graphic adventure explains the war that ended the sunlit Victorian era and catapulted the U.S. into a dramatic century of revolution and global responsibility. This book will help classroom teachers and home educators explain the complicated politics and geography of World War I. Plus the drawings of the biplanes are cool.
