This book tells the story of five French soldiers in World War I, and the young fiancee of one of the soldiers, who tries to find out what happened to them during a terrible incident on the battle field. Through letters and contact with other soldiers who were there, Mathilde tries to find out what really happened to her fiance.

I thought this was a fascinating book, although I did find it hard to keep track of all the characters, since each soldier had a French name and multiple nick-names, as well as friends and family who they communicated with.

This was an exciting story, as piece by piece Mathilde (and the reader) figure out the true story of what happened to her fiance.
