Even more powerful than War Horse. Shot at dawn. Written out of history. A First World War tale to burn into your mind. Amid the blazing battlefields of the Western Front, young Private ‘Tommo’ Peaceful remembers his childhood. His memory is full of his family life in the countryside. But each passing moment brings Tommo closer to morning, when his life will change in a heartbreaking way… In this impassioned tale, master writer Michael Morpurgo explores the forgotten fate of the soldiers shot for cowardice in the Great War. Their names left off the memorials. Their stories untold – until now.
