Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A novel of the First World War. Alfie signs up for the army aged just 15, carried away by patriotic fervour at the start of the Great War. But life in the trenches is very far from his dreams of glory. It's hard, and cold, and it's boring. Alfie is desperate to see some action. But when he volunteers for a raid on the German trenches, against the advice of his comrades, Alfie begins to understand what war means, and to see the value of the lives that are being thrown away on the Western Front every day...

Synopsis:

The Great War has begun. An underage boy signs up for the Army to be like the other men fighting for his country, but the reality of war is very different from his dreams of glory.
