R 125,76
A powerful, moving, and ultimately hopeful story about one boy's journey to the First World War, of the horrors he faced there, and of the time, amongst all the bloodshed, fighting gave way to football on the frozen ground of No-Man's-Land.

Publishing to coincide with the centenary of the start of the First World War.
Jack, standing among the war graves, sees a face he recognizes. Suddenly, it's 1914 again and he's a young lad back in the trenches. Visions of killing and misery come to him with horrible clarity.

But then Jack remembers too the incredible moment when the guns fell silent for a short time, and fighting gave way to football on the frozen ground of No-Man's-Land.

This amazing story, based on true facts from the First World War, will transport readers back to the war fields of France and show that even in times of conflict and extreme sadness, there is always hope.
