Private Peaceful

Author(s): Michael Morpurgo

Children Fiction

During the hours of one precious night, Private Thomas Peaceful looks back over his childhood, his memories of growing up and his family in rural England, to his present life of brutal callousness on the battlefields of France in World War 1. At the heart of his memories is the inseparable bond shared with Charlie, his brother, and Mollie, the girl his brother married. Inspired by the name on a gravestone in Ypres, this novel is a work of fiction, but its ring of truth never falters. And so masterly is the telling of this life of the life of this 17 year old boy/man soldier, that the reader lives and feels every moment of it. Tension is maintained until the very end. The reader will have difficulty in putting this book down. Very highly recommendd for young adults.
