Synopsis: This is a fascinating scrapbook insight to the First World War, as seen through the eyes of a young boy. In 1914, just before the outbreak of the First World War, ten-year-old Archie is sent a scrapbook in the post by his Uncle Colin. In the years that follow, until the war ends in 1918, he writes in the book and we experience life through Archie's eyes and learn about his world and his family in an exhilarating collage of strip comics, doodles, drawings, cartoon characters, mementoes, photos, thoughts and jokes. It's an astonishing insight into what it was like to be a child at this important moment in history. With its striking scrapbook style - containing flaps and fold-out letters - "Archie's War" is fun, informative and instantly accessible to a young audience. It supports KS1 and KS2 History: historical interpretation and enquiry, and KS2 English: reading in a variety of forms (letters, diaries, autobiographies).
