Customer Review

on 24 April 2014
John Bishop’s third novel returns to the First World war era with underage Harry’s love of cars and his desire to see some action taking us on a non-stop adventure in war torn Belgium.
Using historical facts to provide the backdrop on this cleverly woven fictional yarn we have the narrator, Harry, trying to come to terms with the cultural mix of his female companions including the well-intentioned Lady Hester and the drama of the opening months of the War unfolding in front of him.
Events swing back and forth, as they battle to do their bit for the injured soldiers, frequently fighting not only the enemy but also the also British bureaucracy. As things go from bad to worse with the imminent prospect of facing a firing squad we begin to fear the worst for Harry and his band of females up against the Kaiser’s war machine.
This story helps highlight the prejudices and issues of the day, which do not end with the war as Harry struggles to resolve the conflict and confusion in his young life. Can he overcome? We are left hanging until the last page.
