Flame throwers, spy trees, bird bombs, and Hell Fighters were all a part of World War I, but you won't learn that in your history books! Uncover long-lost secrets of spies like Howard Burnham, “The One-Legged Wonder,” and nurse-turned-spy, Edith Cavell. Peek into secret files to learn the truth about the Red Baron and the mysterious Mata Hari. Then learn how to build your own Zeppelin balloon and mix up some invisible ink. It’s all part of the true stories from the Top Secret Files: World War I. Take a look if you dare, but be careful! Some secrets are meant to stay hidden . . .

Top Secret Files: World War I
Jam-packed with fascinating facts, historical photos that bring the text to life, visually appealing graphics, and interesting sidebars, TOP SECRET FILES: WORLD WAR I is an excellent addition to any home or school library. Short chapters will appeal to younger readers as well as busy adults, and the “Spy Training” hands-on activities at the end of each section make history fun. Highly recommended!

Top Secret Files World War I
As a bookseller, I am delighted to have a book on World War I to recommend to my young readers with an interest in the topic. Bearce does a great job of spotlighting topics such as secret codes that will interest the targeted age group. The illustrations and activities are an added dimension that add to the appeal of the book.

Captivating for Young Readers
As an educator, I found this book to be captivating to young readers. The layout of the text features invites readers to learn about the secrets of spies, missions and hidden facts they may not have been taught in history classes. This book is engaging and also includes several fun spy training experiments. I highly recommend this book to classroom teachers, parents, librarians and especially history teachers.

Review by: Elaine Weiner, Gifted Education Communicator - September 1, 2015
WWI is like all the Prufrock books. It has all the wonderful little boxes and pictures that appear in just the right places. Prufrock even tells our children how to do spy work at home with safe, approved ways. So clever!
