The Tale of a Boy Soldier

price: £3.49
Author(s)George Parker

As a fifteen-year-old boy during World War One, George Parker single-mindedly decided to ‘fight for king and country’. This is a truthful and sincere account of life in the trenches, told with a dry sense of humour that kept George and his comrades cheerful, against the odds. George remained remarkably optimistic, despite the hard living conditions that existed at that time and the fact that he was seriously wounded in battle. His courage and determination epitomise the resilience of the human spirit in overcoming adversity and surviving traumatic times.
