My Mother's Eyes
He trains for months and soon sails for Egypt.Then the battalion lands at Armentieres, France. There, many soldiers were killed.
William's battalion sailed for Egypt, Gallipoli, France and Europe. They landed at Gallipoli and fought in a ferocious battle. Together they huddled in trenches and kept each other warm on cold days. Then, suddenly they were bombed and william was killed. His grandfather received a letter from him just before the great tragedy. They lived and they breathed and they now lie in Flanders Field.
What I liked best about William was how he respected his parents and helped his mother look after his sister.
I give this book a rating of 4 out of 5. I thought it was interesting learning a bit about world war 1 and also enjoying the fiction part of the book. However, it had some sad bits in it.
