A stunning novel of the First World War

They've gone now, and I'm alone at last.

I have the whole night ahead of me, and I won't waste a single moment of it...

I want tonight to be long, as long as my life...

As young Thomas Peaceful looks back over his childhood

from the battlefields of the First World War, his memories

are full of family life deep in the countryside.

But the clock is ticking, and every moment Tommo

spends remembering how things used to be, means another moment closer

to something which will change his life forever.

....a deeply moving portrayal of camaraderie and courage, innocence and brutality...
