Private Peaceful, The National Production Company

Divided by love. United by war.

Private Peaceful relives the life of Private Tommo Peaceful, a young First World War soldier awaiting the firing squad at dawn. During the night, he looks back at his short but joyful past growing up in rural Devon: his exciting first days at school; the accident in the forest that killed his father; his adventures with Molly, the love of his life; and the battles and injustices of war that brought him to the front line. ​

Winner of the Blue Peter Book of the Year, Private Peaceful is “as moving as the poetry of Wilfred Owen and as painfully memorable as white-hot shrapnel…”(The Sunday Herald). ​

Recommended age: 8+
