Divided by love. United by war.
Written by the award-winning author of War Horse and winner of the Blue Peter 'Book of the Year' Award, Private Peaceful tells the emotive and poignant tale of love, loss, friendship and war.
The story recalls the life of Private Tommo Peaceful, a young First World War soldier awaiting the firing squad at dawn. During his final night, he looks back at his short but joyful past: his exciting first days at school; the accident in the forest that killed his father; his adventures with Molly, the love of his life; and the battles and injustices of war that brought him to the front line.
An enthralling and deftly dramatic adaptation of Michael Morpurgo’s novel that is "as moving as the poetry of Wilfred Owen and as painfully memorable as white-hot shrapnel..." (The Sunday Herald).
