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.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Liam Foxx

I have always had a knack for writing stories I spent many years in the army and gained university qualifications on leaving. I have always loved history and stories with a twist to them, hence the way I write. Before serious illness overtook me I was a lecturer on the circuit and had many good times teaching young people.
