Canada in World War I
By Mary Lynn Bushong
  

1     Why do people fight wars? Sometimes it is to get more land. Sometimes it is to show that your country is strong. Sometimes it is to stop enemies.
 
2     Ways of fighting have changed. Armies used to use swords, spears, and arrows. Then guns were invented.
 
3     When World War One came, there were new weapons. Men had airplanes, tanks, and gas. The gas was not what you use in a car. It was like green air. It would sink down to the ground into trenches.
 
4     The soldiers were in the trenches. It would make some soldiers sick. It would kill others.
 
5     Why did World War One start? There are many reasons.
 
6     Some countries put their armies together. They could show how strong they were that way.
 
7     Some wanted to prove that their country was the best. The French said that they were the best. The Germans said they were the best.
 
8     Then one day, an important man was killed. He was an Archduke. He was killed in the small country of Bosnia.
 
9     The Germans and Austrians were friends. The man was one of their leaders. They wanted to attack the people who killed him.
