It was exciting to be on our way at last … but we were such innocents. We had no idea of the hell that lay ahead. Even if we had known, what could we have done about it? They were our golden youth, seeking adventure on foreign battlefields.

The First World War, everyone said in 1914, would be over by Christmas, and Stephen Conway rushes to enlist in the belief he should fight for King and Empire. Leaving behind a new wife and a baby on the way, he soon finds himself in the trenches of Gallipoli. Four horrific years later, Stephen is the only survivor of his platoon, shell-shocked and disillusioned, and during the heat of battle on the blood-stained fields of France, he mysteriously disappears.

Stephen's ultimate fate is still a mystery when more than eighty years later his grandson Patrick finds a diary that leads him to Britain and France on a journey to discover what really happened. It is a journey during which he unexpectedly finds love, and the truth about his grandfather's fate that is even stranger and more shocking than he imagined.

Based on true events, this is an unforgettable novel of courage and survival from a master storyteller. Softcover, 382pgs. near new. .
