"Jeffrey K. Walker has woven a tale of intrigue, love and guilt while paying homage to the famous Royal Newfoundland Regiment, whose near annihilation on July 1, 1916 is entwined into the heart and soul of every Newfoundlander today and the very fabric of this book. His attention to detail is superbly crafted, drawing extensively from his expert research, travels and his own experience in the military. Part one of his trilogy will leave the reader eagerly anticipating the next two volumes." --Frank Gogos, author of The Royal Newfoundland Regiment in the Great War
About the Author
Jeffrey K. Walker is a Midwesterner, born in what was once the Glass Container Capital of the World. A retired military officer, he served in Bosnia and Afghanistan, planned the Kosovo air campaign and ran a State Department program in Baghdad. He’s been shelled, rocketed and sniped by various groups, all with bad aim. He’s lived in ten states and three foreign countries, managing to get degrees from Harvard and Georgetown along the way. An attorney and professor, he taught legal history at Georgetown, law of war at William & Mary and criminal and international law while an assistant dean at St. John’s. He’s been a contributor on NPR and a speaker at federal judicial conferences. He dotes on his wife, with whom he lives in Virginia, and his children, who are spread across the United States. Jeffrey has never been beaten at Whack-a-Mole. Connect with him on Twitter at @jkwalkerAuthor, on his Facebook fan page at www.facebook.com/jeffreykwalker or on his website at jeffreykwalker.com.

I liked the way the author switched between the main characters in the novel, Deirdra, Jack and Will which provided the reader with a different perspective and voice. I consider a story about wartime to be a masculine story so having Deirdre to lessen the impact was appreciated.
The author is a gifted storyteller which helped me clearly visualize the setting and briought the characters alive for me. I loved the witty dialog and banter along with the humor infused by the author.
I look forward to the 2nd book in the trilogy being published and I highly recommend this book. My father suffered from PTSD (we didn't understand it at the time) and Mr. Walker honors veterans by giving them a voice and reminded me that we owe so much to them.
Looking at the issues from a WWI time frame perspective was very interesting. The amount of actual history is very helpful, and not overwhelming. There were some wonderful descriptions in the war scenes. It would be a great book to read in book clubs – there is plenty to discuss.
