What the critics say:

Publisher’s reviewer for Hodder and Stoughton, UK.

Extremely impressive, evocative, moving, clearly written with both passion and a very clear grasp of the factual background … a substantial and very readable novel … a novel with real quality.

Publisher’s reviewers for Hudson Hawthorn, UK.

1. Something of a tour de force … the book is quite stunningly written, the descriptions of France and trench warfare are vivid and compelling. … The story is told by a clever amalgam of first person, present tense narrative …, and by ‘extracts’ from diaries and letters written by the French characters … it is powerful stuff.

2. The book is extremely well written and structurally imaginative and coherent … the descriptions of trench warfare are intense and very moving.
