The Morning Rides Behind Us

Author(s): Tariq Goddard

General Fiction

This is a pacy, powerful novel about the horrors of war and the brutality of peace from Whitbread-shortlisted author. The heroes of T Squadron gather at Moat's wake to drink and argue and reminisce. Moat survived four years of tank battles but a year of peace was more than he could bear - having surveyed the hauntingly beautiful scenery of the New Forest one last time, he drove his motorbike into a tree. Since the second world war ended the men have struggled to readjust to civilian life. Most are now employed at the Fox Brandy Chocolate Plant and harbour resentments towards the owner, who was building his empire and sleeping with their women while they were risking their lives. Fuelled by alcohol and a fiercely nihilistic moral code they stage a last desperate act against the town. "The Morning Rides Behind Us" is a raw and passionate novel of friendship, love and memory.
