Synopsis

A funny and moving story of life during the First World War, told through the eyes of schoolboy Archie Albright.



When 10-year-old Archie Albright is given a scrapbook for his birthday in April 1914, he thinks he'll fill it with comics, souveniers and funny stories about his family. But then, on 3 August 1914, war breaks out, and his life changes for ever. Archie tells the story of the First World War from his point of view, filling his scrapbook with anecdotes about life in London's East End, newspaper clippings, letters from his dad and uncle who are fighting in France, and his own war-inspired comic strips. Archie's War is funny, touching and accessible, and gives a unique insight into what life was life for a child during the First World War.
