A gripping novel of human hardship during the First World War, which draws on original records for a wealth of domestic and military detail. It follows the real-life story of Ted Smith, a Durham coal miner from childhood to marriage, enlistment into the Durham Light Infantry at 19 and finally to the carnage that was the Second Battle for Ypres. The tale skilfully threads together what happened back home with what was happening at the front. There is nothing in this story that Ted did not see, or hear; or feel. Landing in France the battalion marched through Belgium to relieve a position ridiculously in advance of the Line at Boetleer's Farm. 200 went in, 20 or so came back.
