Books about WWI

The last lesson of the WWI project day was literature. However, we didn´t have a usual lesson in the classroom – we went to the local library where the librarian had prepared a lecture about various Czech books about the First World War (all of them on the shelves of the library so ready to be lent). There were about twenty of them and they came from various periods – some of them written soon after the war (one of those is probably the most famous one “The Good Soldier Švejk” by J. Hašek), others written recently even if they are based on old authentic soldiers´ diaries. The librarian knew so much about the books and their authors – it was amazing. However, after the lecture we agreed that it was rather difficult to remember all the interesting facts – so maybe we will rather read a book or two about WWI on our own.
