Part 2 — War
A long time ago there was a war. A war is like a big fight between countries who disagree over some things.
Most of the countries in the world joined in the fighting and this was called the First World War. This war lasted four years. There was a second World War which lasted for six years. Since then there have been other small wars and battles like in Vietnam.
Very brave people are called heroes. Simpson and his donkey are famous heroes from the First World War. Simpson put wounded soldiers on the donkey’s back and helped them to the first aid tent.
