This month, we have SIX copies of 1914: First Blood – A Tommy Gunn Adventure by John Hughes-Wilson to be won!
Daring, bravery and front-line action on the battlefields of France
This thrilling novel about front-line action in World War I highlights the adventures of Lieutenant T.O.M. ‘Tommy’ Gunn, a young infantry lieutenant in the Sherwood Foresters. As the fighting kicks off, Gunn throws in his lot with a hastily-formed battalion of reservists, regulars and territorial soldiers who soon find themselves pitchforked into the mayhem and slaughter of the Western Front. As autumn turns to winter and the men find themselves floundering in the freezing mud of the trenches and facing an implacable German foe, Tommy and his fellow soldiers begin to realise that this is going to be a long war – and they will be lucky to survive.
Author John Hughes-Wilson – who served in the real Sherwood Foresters – is acclaimed as one of Britain’s leading military historians, authors and battlefield experts. This is the first of a series of ‘Tommy Gunn’ books describing the course of the war and based on true-life accounts of some of its key battles.
