Book Description HTML

Billy Boy starts with a journalist taking shelter in an old railway station, then goes on to tell the story of an underage boy who joins up in the patriotic fervor of the first world war. He finds love and a horror he never thought imaginable wrongly accused of a capital crime his soul hangs in limbo until the injustice is put to rights. There is laughter and despair triumph and failure set against some of the most savage battles of the first world war and at the end a twist to the story that will seem astonishing.

The story line is excellent, I found it hard to stop reading it. May I suggest the use of Spell Check? The spelling mistakes really stops the flow of the story.

This was a great story, but the spelling and grammar is atrocious! However if you overlook the niceties, you can not but recommend it.

Roslyn Devine

Loved it but I kept wanting to fix the punctuation!


Joe Santoro

Great character development. Also a good history on part of World War I


norman lee

A well researched story,gives graphic details of the horror of warfare&the attitude of the British General Staff who sent thousands of young men to their deaths.Also gives an insight to life in Britain in 1914.My only criticism is the use of the American word "gotten"To me it spoilt the part of the story it was in


Peter J. Lewis

An incredible story full of the terror of the trenches. Horror, pathos and a surprising twist. It's all here. More please Liam.


cliff cott

The book was good; liked the historical content. The spelling and wrong use of words was distracting but enjoyed the yarn.


kim lord
