Read in August, 2011
The characters are from Australia/New Zealand set mainly during WWI. I enjoyed the book because it had alot of historical facts about the war and the contributions that the ANZAC army gave (especially Gallipoli where so many men were slaughtered needlessly). I was sad about the ending though because one of the main characters dies. He is a very detailed writer so it takes me a long time to read his books but I enjoy them alot. He also writes in such a way as to get very involved in the characters to make you feel connected to them.
