Publisher's Summary

The powerful new novel from the master storyteller - inspired by the true story of one man who might have stopped World War II.

It's 1940. The train is under attacks from German fighters. In the darkness, sheltering in a railway tunnel, the stranger in the carriage with Barney and his mother tells them a story to pass the time. And what a story. The story of a young man, a young soldier in the trenches of World War I who, on the spur of the moment, had done what he thought was the right thing.

It turned out to have been the worst mistake he ever could have made - a mistake he must put right before it is too late....

What the Critics Say

"Brilliant, fascinating and intriguing. Historical fiction at its most magnificent." (Jackie French)

Praise for Michael Morpurgo: "Michael Morpurgo writes brilliantly about war and animals, conveying the big emotions without preaching. The former children's laureate has the happy knack of speaking to both child and adult readers." (Guardian)
"Morpurgo, as always, is subtle and skilful, and incorporates social and moral issues into his writing without being self-righteous or detracting from the quality of the narrative." (Elizabeth Reilly, British Council)

    "An Eagle In The Snow"

    Reading this book was an amazing experience. I didn't like tend voice of the reader when I started listening but I became used to it and came to enjoy it.
    I rated this book so high because it has an amazing story line and it finds a way of making sure you can't stop listening. I would recommend this book to anyone really and I hope whoever does read this book will enjoy it tremendously.
