Summary

Captain Tom Barnes is leading British troops in a war zone. On all sides of this conflict, people are about to be caught up in the violence....
We see the characters not as they see themselves but as all the objects surrounding them do: shoes and boots, a helmet, a drone, a bag of fertilizer, a medal, a beer glass, dog tags, an exploding IED and the medical implements that are subsequently employed.

Absorbing

A unique, immersive and utterly compelling portrait of battle and survival. Emotionally charged, gripping and human.

Reading group

Listened to this for a book club and was amazed at just how brilliant the storyline was.
Different from anything I usually read or listen to but completely addictive.
