A stunning edition of this modern classic of World War One, featuring an introduction by the author and insightful testimonies from soldiers. Told in the voice of Private Tommo Peaceful, the story follows twenty-four hours at the front, and captures his memories of his family and his village life - by no means as tranquil as it appeared. Full of vivid detail and engrossing atmosphere, leading to a dramatic and moving conclusion, Private Peaceful is both a compelling love story and a deeply moving account of the First World War. Extra material: - Introduction by Michael Morpurgo - Inspiration letter by Michael Morpurgo - Background on the execution of British soldiers in WW1 for cowardice, including personal testimony from soldiers
