Review: PRIVATE PEACEFUL by Michael Morpurgo

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.

Read the full review.
