Eleven Eleven

Publisher: Bloomsbury Publishing

Review

In the early hours of 11 November 1918, the agreement to end World War I is finally sealed but it will be several hours before the Armistice filters down the chain of command to the troops on the ground, and in the air – and a lot can happen in a few hours. As time ticks away, the lives of three young men, one English, one German and one American, collide as they fight to survive the final horrors of the war. 

This action-packed thriller combines historical detail with three very personal stories of courage, strength and tragedy, to produce a gripping and thought-provoking account of the final hours of a brutal conflict. This powerful page-turner is ideal for use in history teaching, as well as making compelling reading in its own right.
