Private Peaceful

A stunning story from a master storyteller, published for the first time in an adult edition.

Both a love story and a deeply moving account of the horrors of the First World War, this book will reach everyone from 9 to 90.

Told in the voice of Private Tommo Peaceful, the story follows twenty-four hours at the front, and captures his memories of his family and his village life – by no means as tranquil as it appeared. Full of vivid detail and engrossing atmosphere, and leading to a dramatic and moving conclusion, Private Peaceful is both a compelling love story and a deeply moving account of the First World War.
