For readers of twelve and over. Includes the shooting of a deserter. "It was the long hot summer of 1914. Lt John Carey was enjoying his comfortable life as an officer with the West Glamorgan Regiment. The Careys were proud of their military tradition - but neither this nor the rigid training of Sandhurst could have prepared him for the horrors that he was soon to face..... For Europe was on the brink of war, and within days the young subaltern was thrust into the grim reality of the front-line trenches with only the bleak no-man's-land between himself and the full might of the German army. The War seemed to drag on endlessly, draining the armies of both sides. With half their army gone, how could the British ever break through those enemy lines? The answer was to come in the form of a new and mysterious weapon..... Ronald Welch continues his series of tales of the Carey family, and their heroic deeds on the gruesome battle fields of the past. "
