Nathan Hale’s Hazardous Tales: Treaties, Trenches, Mud, and Blood (A World War I Tale)

We rated this book:


Right before Nathan Hale, an American Spy during the Revolutionary War, is executed, he tells a story about World War I. The book is a graphic novel, and all the soldiers and characters (except for Nathan Hale, the Hangman, and the British Soldier) are animals dressed up. It starts out with the leaders of Serbia, Russia, and France against Austria-Hungary and Germany. Austria-Hungary declares war on Serbia and Austria-Hungary finds more allies to help them. At first it seems like they and Germany are going to win, because things are going very poorly for France, Russia, and Serbia. But then, because Serbia and its allies fight so hard, the German and Austria-Hungarian allies are being beaten and decide to retreat.

This book was interesting and interestingly told, and very entertaining for a history book. It also had a lot of jokes that were entertaining and it had a lot of metaphors that were funny, like it had Ares, the god of war, as a metaphor. Ares was a machine, and represented how war can be created by man or taken apart by man. It’s a good book.
