The Darkness and the Thunder

(2015)
(The second book in the Great War series)
A novel by

 
The second in Stewart Binns' acclaimed Great War Series, The Darkness and the Thunder is a sweeping story of war following five families through the terrifying conditions of the Western Front, the slaughter of Gallipoli and the heartbreak of those left at home.

'The book on the conflict remembered 100 years on' Jon Wise, Sunday Sport

-1915-

The Western Front is a wasteland of barbed wire, shell craters and mud-filled trenches. Winston Churchill, searching for a solution to the stalemate, commits the Allies to a disastrous Gallipoli campaign.

As men on both sides die in droves, miners and mill-workers work tirelessly for the war effort while families confront the broken bodies of returning soldiers. Nurses, soldiers, politicians, factory-workers and children - all are torn apart by war, and for husbands and sons, mothers and wives, the old way of life is vanishing.
