Michael Morpurgo War Fiction Pair

Gripping war stories from a master of the genre, which show how good and evil are never black and white. In his remarkable and celebrated Private Peaceful, Michael Morpurgo recreates the horror of the First World War trenches. Through the eyes of a young soldier, Tommo Peaceful, he brings to life the forgotten fate of the soldiers shot for cowardice in the Great War. The action moves forward to World War II in Friend and Foe, in which two young evacuees, David and Tucky, stumble across a crashed German bomber plane. The boys expect to hate the airmen inside. But things get complicated when one of them saves David’s life…
