A BBC Radio 4 dramatization of the powerful novel set in World War I, from the author of War Horse. This is the story of Thomas "Tommo" Peaceful, a young soldier who finds himself in Belgium, in the trenches of World War I, with his brother Charlie. It is also the story of Tommo's life, growing up in Devon with his brothers, and of his love for Molly, the beautiful girl he met on his first day at school. As the story unfolds, from past to present, so approaches the hour when Tommo and Charlie will be separated for ever. The horrors of World War I, and the injustice meted out to the soldiers who fought in it, are movingly described. Recorded on location Iddesleigh, the Devon village where the book is set, this radio dramatization features among its cast Paul Chequer, Nicholas Lyndhurst, and author Michael Morpurgo himself.
