Educational edition of this powerful, moving, and ultimately hopeful story about one boy's journey to the First World War, of the horrors he faced there, and of the time, amongst all the bloodshed, fighting gave way to football on the frozen ground of No-Man's-Land.


  • Publishing on 11/11/13 and in time for 2014, the year which sees not only the centenary of the First World War, but also of the football World Cup, both of which tie in to the themes in this story.
  • Told with heart and emotion, together with action and pace, this beautifully-written story brings to life this important point in history.
  • The perfect book for Key Stage 3 students, particularly to tie in with any First World War projects.
