Private Peaceful

Private Peaceful

Michael Morpurgo’s Private Peaceful

Divided by love. United by war.

“I’ve had nearly eighteen years of yesterdays and tomorrows,and tonight I must remember as many of them as I can.Tonight, more than any other night of my life, I want to feel alive!”

Private Peaceful relives the life of Private Tommo Peaceful, a young First World War soldier awaiting the firing squad at dawn. During the night, he looks back at his short but joyful past: his exciting first days at school; the accident in the forest that killed his father; his adventures with Molly, the love of his life; and the battles and injustices of war that brought him to the front line.

Winner of the Blue Peter ‘Book of the Year’ Award, Private Peaceful is “as moving as the poetry of Wilfred Owen and as painfully memorable as white-hot shrapnel…”(The Sunday Herald).

Recommended age: 8+
