No Man's Land

I lined up my platoon and went through the necessary inspection. Some of the men looked terribly ill: grey, worn faces in the dawn, unshaved and dirty because there was no clean water. I saw the characteristic shrugging of their shoulders that I knew so well. They hadn't had their clothes off for weeks, and their shirts were full of lice. Our progress to the battle area was slow and difficult.

The opportunity opened for Anglo-French forces to reverse the hitherto victorious German advance through Belgium and France when First Army commander Heinrich von Kluck, who anchored the right wing of the German advance, swung north, rather than west, of Paris, across the front of Michel-Joseph Maunoury’s French Sixth Army. Alerted by French air reconnaissance and radio intercepts, the first time either had been used in a major conflict, French commander in chief Joseph Joffre ordered an attack. On September 6, Maunoury, reinforced by troops, rushed to the front in requisitioned Paris taxis and buses—the first extensive use of motorized transport in wartime and forever celebrated as the “taxis of the Marne”—slammed into von Kluck’s overextended army. Surprised, von Kluck recalled his advanced guard and swung his forces to the southwest to meet Maunoury’s attack. Battles of the Western Front 1914-1918.

BBC Schools - WW1 Secondary. World War 1 Breakout - in a nutshell. Private Peaceful by Michael Morpurgo - review.

Private Peaceful by Michael Morpurgo - review

The book is set from around the beginning of the twentieth century to around the end of the first world war. Before you start reading about the plot, there is something you must know: the Peaceful brothers' father is dead. You will have to find out how he died for yourself. The story begins while the Peaceful brothers are walking to school, with their mother. It is Tommo's first ever day at school, and he is extremely scared, mostly because of Charlie's teacher, Mr Munnings and his cane. Soon after this, Charlie decides that he wants to fight in the war, although he is underage. My favourite character was Charlie, because he was so brave to disobey Hanley's order.
