A fantastic book, well written, highly recommended..

Skilfully written with engaging characters and a story that moves along briskly but at the same time allows you to breath in the aroma of the coal mine, the barracks and the battlefield. I love the way this book moves from the grit, blood & sweat of the coal mine across the channel & into war, you really get a sense of what it must've been like to transition from the spectre of war to the reality of it. Can't recommend this book highly enough & can't wait to read more from this author..
