Pals War, the Battle of Loos

by Andy Whitehead | 30 June 2017
Category: Historical Fiction
Synopsis
Follow Major Daniel Byrne on his journey both through the trenches and upwards through the ranks of the British Army as he leads his fearless band of 'Knaves', formed as a crack special unit made up of childhood friends from the mining towns of the north east of England. AAG Whitehead's Pals War: the Battle of Loos is a personal insight into life on the frontline of the First World War, centred on a group of young men who grew up together and now form a unique and elite band of fighters tasked with covert operations and intelligence gathering on the frontline during 1915.The Battle of Loos is not a book of deliberately graphic detail but a more touching and intimate account, a study of one man's experience which fully evokes the camaraderie of this group of men, although the horror of the war is never far away. The book also offers a fascinating portrait of the life of ordinary French people behind the lines and their interaction with the British soldiers, which contrasts dramatically with the carnage of the frontline. A none too predictable tale for this subject matter, The Battle of Loos is both different and captivating.
