Pals War: The Battle of Loos

By A. A. G. Whitehead

Major Daniel Byrne and his crack special unit made up of Durham childhood friends are on a journey – through the trenches and upwards through the ranks of the British Army.

The group of ‘Knaves’ give a thrilling personal insight into life on the frontline of the First World War. These young men who grew up together now form a unique and elite band of fighters tasked with covert operations and intelligence gathering.

The tale offers a fascinating portrait of the life of ordinary French people and their interaction with the British soldiers, providing a jarring contrast with the carnage of the frontline only miles away.

The Battle of Loos is a touching and intimate account which fully evokes the camaraderie of this group of young men amidst the horror of war. Perfect for fans of Pat Barker.
