Summary
Newcastle, 1918. It seems like the war could last forever. John's an ordinary Tyneside lad and he's desperate for peace. His dad is fighting in the trenches and his mam works in the town's munitions factory, the biggest in the world. John meets a German boy, Jan, who is just like himself; they play war games in the woods beyond the town, and see the ugliness of weapons contrasting with the beauty of the world around them. John dreams of a better, more beautiful world. His dreams will speak to all of us, and his questions resonate with children of today. Is war ever really over? Why do children see the truths from which adults seem to hide? Why do we need wars at all?
