Read in September, 2006

A murder-mystery at heart, this is set in the first World War, where Elton had grandfathers fighting on opposing sides. The graphic accounts of hand to hand fighting and the soldiers' reactions to the daily horrors of the trenches stayed with me long after the book was finished. A well-written and thought provoking book.
