The Children’s War recently read and reviewed Private Peaceful by Michael Morpurgo for the WWI Reading Challenge in 2012. Here’s a sample:
With Private Peaceful, I felt as though I (as a reader) were simply privy to Tommo’s private memories. He wanted to be alone for the night and consciousness that I was there as a listener would have defeated his need to be alone. Private Peaceful is a well written novel, but there are some graphic descriptions of trench warfare. It is written in the plain, straightforward language of a young country boy at that time, such there is a real eloquence to it.
