Beschreibung

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

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....

Kritikerstimmen

"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)
