Private Peaceful

Collins, 2003 - 184 páginas
For young Private Thomas Peaceful, looking back over his childhood from the battlefields of the First World War, his memoires are full of family life deep in the countryside. Mother, his brothers Charlie and Big Joe, and their friend Molly, come vividly alive in his mind. But every moemnt Tomas spends thinking about his life, means another moment closer to something he cannot bear to think about - a time when the ware and its horrific consequences will change his life for ever.
