How do you get children interested in the First World War?
In this podcast episode, we are joined by Andrew Powell-Thomas, editor of Over The Top, a history magazine aimed at children, published by the Great War Group. We then speak to two special guests, who give us their opinion. Along the way we consider how you get specialist historians to write for children, what stories spark historical interest and the importance of animals to the history of the war.
