Quite a sad, yet uplifting book about the lives of 20 young men and women who lost their lives in Afghanistan. A timely reminder for us during the commemorations for the Anniversary of The Great War, that British Soldiers are still conducting their duties in dangerous and difficult times. This book is certainly worth reading.

The competition can be entered through Survey Monkey here.

Closing date for this competition is 14 December 2014

Review can be found here.

This is a good, well written book which handles a very difficult subject extremely well and although a sad read, it is one that is well worthwhile.
