Michael Morpurgo - Private Peaceful (2nd Hand Paperback)
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, leading to a dramatic and moving conclusion, Private Peaceful by Michael Morpurgo is both a compelling love story and a deeply moving account of the First World War.
