Canadian Bookworm recently read and reviewed The Englishman’s Daughter by Ben Macintyre for the WWI Reading Challenge in 2012. Here’s an excerpt:
Near the beginning of World War I, many Allied soldiers found themselves behind enemy lines on the western front. This concentrates on four British soldiers that were forced to hide for years in a tiny French village called Villeret. Other soldiers similarly trapped in the area are also touched included, but the author concentrates on these four particularly because he became aware of their story when invited to a memorial service at their gravesite in the late 1990s.
