Summary
"In the First World War, Ronald Skirth was an ordinary tommy. His experiences were like those of many others, fighting in the trenches under constant bombardment, suffering under a cowardly commanding officer, enduring shell shock and finally, somehow surviving. But Skirth's story is more extraordinary than that. For on the Flanders battlefield he had a moment of epiphany when he came across the dead body of a teenaged German soldier. The boy was just like him. His corpse was bizarrely untouched, and in his hand was a photo of his girlfriend, who looked just like Skirth's own sweetheart, Ella."--Jacket
