Michael Morpurgo - Private Peaceful (2nd Hand Paperback)

SKU B000664

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.

"Written from the heart" - Observer.

"His [Tommo's] journey from agricultural labourer to cannon fodder is movingly told . . . Michael Morpurgo is expert at getting through to his readers. He writes here about events that should never be forgotten nor forgiven, and does so most effectively." - Independent.

"Full of warmth as well as grief, conveying vividly how precious it is to be alive" - Sunday Times.

"The best novel he's written since The Butterfly Lion." - Times.
