Tracing their experiences through the course of the war, the narrative brilliantly explores and dramatises the events of the Easter Rising within Ireland, and how such a seminal political moment came to affect those boys off fighting for the King of England on foreign fields - the paralysing doubts and divisions it caused them.Hide synopsis

good research for presenting a believable story about a volunteer for Britain's efforts in WWI. A sad tale, but much of WWI was a sad waste of young men. Should spur fiction lovers to read some history.
Most of us only have vague memories of WWI from highschool world history class. Barry opens the readers eyes to the horror of that war and the impact it had on the men in the trenches. The reader will understand the saying that a million deaths is a statistic but one death is a tragedy. You probably won't want to read this right after eating, but if you want to know what your history class didn't teach you, you'll read this account to the end. Now, I know what my great great uncle really went through.
