An old man recounts his experience as a young soldier at the front during World War I
A stunning novel of the First World War.
For young Private Thomas Peaceful, looking back over his childhood from the battlefields of the First World War, his memories are full of family life deep in the countryside. Mother, his brothers Charlie and Big Joe, and their friend Molly, come vividly alive in his mind.
But every moment Tommo spends thinking about his life, means another moment closer to something he cannot bear to think about - a time when the war and its consequences will change his life forever.
