Editorial Review

"This emotionally gripping novel brings to life an account of the atrocities of war amongst a tightknit group of infantry soldiers. It explores the personal relationships between leaders and followers, Indigenous and non-indigenous soldiers, veterans and replacement soldiers, comrades and enemies, soldiers and civilians . . . Janet Love Morrison does a masterful job weaving the personal accounts into an action-packed storyline, making it a captivating read." COLONEL TIMOTHY R. YOUNG

"The narrative tracks Ewen Morrison from England to Normandy, then up through Belgium and the Netherlands and finally into Germany itself. Morrison’s best friend is an Indigenous man and the treatment of First Nations Canadians who were serving their country overseas features large in this book. A good read." MICHAEL KERR, North Vancouver City Library.
