Savvy Verse & Wit recently read and reviewed Private Peaceful by Michael Morpurgo for the WWI Reading Challenge in 2012. Here’s an excerpt:
Morpurgo’s prose is clear and concise to ensure the mood is vivid and the experience of first person has the full impact, particularly during training and in the trenches. A bit more for maturer audiences with its focus on the war and soldiering, but there are lighter moments of ribbing between the soldiers and talk of girls and even romance.
