Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
War and Chance takes you on a roller coaster of emotions from pre-war home town events while Thomas matures, on into the grizzly world of the death and mayhem of the second world war. Having done my national service as a late teen I know the world of the army and it's not pretty - the author got it pretty well right. For his first time Thomas experimented with the fairer sex and initially failed, but eventually got it together. Altogether I call it a very well written book and as gruesome in places as you'd expect of a novel set in war time.

Format: Paperback
A story that takes you to 1940, World War II. The description of the characters is accurate for the era, as is their dialogue.
Poor Thomas is thrust into war and is faced with the vividly harrowing life of a solider. His parents, his friends and his girlfriend all must face life as victims of war.
I enjoyed this book even though I am not usually a reader of war books. The story takes you along as the characters are so lifelike.

By Chris-Jean Clarke on November 4, 2014
Format: Paperback
Thomas enlists in the army with the hope of reporting the events of World War 2 for his father's newspaper, naively believing he will be reporting events from the fringe line. Instead, after weeks of gruelling training he finds himself thrust into battle and having to adopt the mentality `kill or be killed'. Even after his discharge from the army Thomas finds it hard to come to terms with the brutality he saw and had to undertake on the battlefield and starts to rely heavily on his much loved friend, Freddie and beautiful girlfriend, Claudette for support until fate forces him to take stock of his life.

I felt the way in which, the author, K. Freeman intertwines dates, main events and number of people killed throughout the body of the story helps to strengthen the belief that this story wasn't just a piece of fiction set in WW2, but all events had actually taken place.
