    2. I bought this book in the 24 hour sale on Book Depository back in March, where they slash the prices by like 90%, so I scored it for a whopping 2.50 or so and I knew I d save it for reading it around Remembrance Day.I recently wrote my Masters dissertation surrounding the topic of military veterans, so I ve been really in the mood for reading fiction books surrounding the issues they faced, both contemporary and historically especially historically Before World War 1, soldiers would be shot for [...]

    5. 3.5I started this, enjoying the modern bookend of grandfather and grandson visiting the war graves, meeting up with a German remembered from World War One As we moved into the past and to the memories of signing up, training, the Front, it began to feel like a checklist of every aspect of the conflict, being covered to give a student a complete picture of it all Rather than a short novel, it flitted from one important page in history to another.That s not to say it wasn t interesting, because I [...]

    6. A quick little read about World War I and making friendships in the most unlikely circumstances I really enjoyed the message of this story It was sweet and heart warming which was unexpected as stories about war are often grim and depressing This was slow in the beginning but really picked up a little than mid way through The last few chapters, especially, were great to read.I wouldn t consider this as middle grade fiction There are quite a lot of brutal and graphic scenes that aren t suitable [...]

    8. This was a quick read but has a large message The book was about the first world war but it changed my view upon the German army at the time I was taught all through primary and most of lower high school that the Germans were cold killers Infact, this book highlights that the German soldiers wanted the war to stop as much as anyone else you really have to read this book it also included christmas at war and its not what you might think READ IT NOW only 150 pages

    9. Een mooi verhaal Je voelt goed hoe nutteloos de oorlog is geweest Je voelt woede om de man die dood wordt gemaakt, omdat hij verbroedering zou hebben gestimuleerd Stel je voor, wat een geweldige vent moet dat zijn geweest Het begin en slot uit het heden vond ik qua stijl minder geslaagd De kleinkinderen waren niet zo goed uitgewerkt.

    10. A quick but important read There was so much emotion and knowledge packed into this book It s perfect to introduce young people to WWI There s poetry from the war poets included I enjoyed it and have recommended it to my students straight away.
