When he was 15, Thomas Peaceful lied about his age and followed his older brother into the English army to fight in World War I. Now two years have passed, and Thomas' duty for the night is to stay awake and watch the battlefields. He will be shot if he falls asleep. As the night goes on, Thomas reflects on home, his family, his first love, and the horrors of the war. And all the while, a shattering truth comes closer to the surface.

Acclaimed author Michael Morpurgo, Children's Laureate of England, has crafted an incredibly moving and tense tale. Download and start listening now!

    " I'm so glad that more people on touching on the tragedy of WWI. When I was a teen, the only major war that was ever really discussed was WWII. Vietnam was still a bit taboo, and the tragedy and generational loss of WWI was overshadowed by the tragedy of the holocaust. "

    " Set during WWI, about a soldier and his brother. An Enoch Pratt Books for the Beast Historical FIC selection for 2007. Depressing, but well done. "
