From the author of the phenomenally bestselling The Boy in the Striped Pajamas comes an unforgettable story of a boy''s life changed by war, published to coincide with World War One''s centenary.
     The day the First World War broke out, Alfie Summerfield''s father promised he wouldn''t go away to fight -- but he broke that promise the following day. Four years later, Alfie doesn''t know where his father might be, other than that he''s away on a special, secret mission.
     Then, while shining shoes at King''s Cross Station, Alfie unexpectedly sees his father''s name -- on a sheaf of papers belonging to a military doctor. Bewildered and confused, Alfie realises his father is in a hospital close by -- a hospital treating soldiers with an unusual condition. Alfie is determined to rescue his father from this strange, unnerving place...
