Publisher's Summary

Told in the voice of a young soldier, the story follows 24 hours in his life at the front during World War I, and captures his memories as he looks back over his life. Full of stunningly researched detail and engrossing atmosphere, the book leads to a dramatic and moving conclusion. Both a love story and a deeply moving account of the horrors of the First World War, this audiobook will reach everyone from 9 to 90.

Third time reading - kills “me” everytime’

This may have been a book written for children but it SO powerful. In my top ten all time books. How many times do you need to ask - eas that right or wrong? So much debatable injustice. This book, in my opinion, is quite simply a work of art.
