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.

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.
