Jack stayed on when the guns fell silent, to search the battlefields for the boys that could not go home - for the dead and the missing, for both enemy and friend. Amongst the rusty wire and unexploded bombs, Jack is looking for something – looking for someone. He has a promise to keep and a debt to repay, and now there is this strange request from the generals.
The Unknown Soldier is moving, often humorous, but above all thought-provoking. It looks at the First World War from a new perspective, through the eyes of a man who has survived the carnage but who finds it hard to return home. A story of comradeship, betrayal and of promises both broken and kept following the carnage of World War One.
