'My Dear Mother, Well, I've gone and done it. I've joined the Army! Don't be angry at me, Mother dear. I know you were glad when I wasn't chosen in the ballot. But some of my friends were, and since they will be fighting for King and Country, I want to do the same.' It's New Zeal...and, 1914, and the biggest war the world has known has just broken out in Europe. Edmund eagerly enlists for the army but his younger brother, William, is a conscientious objector and refuses to fight. While Edmund trains to be a soldier, William is arrested. Both brothers will end up on the bloody battlefields of France, but their journeys there are very different. And what they experience at the front line will challenge the beliefs that led them there. A compelling novel about the First World War for 9-12 year olds.
