Publisher's Summary

Fifteen-year-old Thomas Elkin engages in the turmoil of the First World War. Accepting the blame for the death of his recently conscripted brother, Elkin switches identity with his dead sibling and enters into the conflict. His burning ambition is to die a glorious death in his brother’s name. Believing that, in fully submitting to the reality of war is atoning for his sins, he faces all the attendant horrors with a steel will and a poignant resignation. His personal conflict sees itself mirrored in the wider events and soon the two are inextricably linked, raising issues of mortality, morality, guilt and faith.

    "Simple wonderful"

    An empathetic but deep look at the unbelievable
    Suffering of soldiers facing the blood bath and horrors
    Of trench warfare..Interwoven is the story of one underage
    Soldier off the many such.
    It's extremely moving . Had me in tears on many occasion.
    Throughly recommended if you want a glimpse of
    That terrible time and a heart turning story to boot....
