Synopsis

My Brother's War by David Hill

It's 1914 - the biggest war the world has known has just broken out in Europe. Far away in New Zealand, William is keen to join up and fight the Germans but his younger brother, Edmund, is totally against the war and refuses to fight. While William trains to be a soldier, Edmund is arrested for being a 'conchie' and locked up in prison. Then he too is made to work for the army. What happens on the terrible battlefields in France? Will either brother live to fight another day?
