This is a book about four boys who play football. It is the year 1914 and there is going to be a war. The four boys decide they are going to sign up for the war, soon they go into training at the camp, they suffer long tiring days of hard work. The war starts; the four boys are sent, they sleep in trenches and have poor food. Eventually they fight although after a few days there is peace and both sides exchange gifts with this being Christmas . There is peace for a few more days when a full-scale attack is launched on the English. Only three of the boys survive.
I thought it was a good detailed book. I would recommend it to people who like dramatic and historic books. 5/10.
