Andy Lansell, killed in the First World War in 1918, lies in a small cemetery in the north of France.

Henry Lyon, in a borrowed Volvo station wagon, is driving up to the south coast of New South Wales.

The paths of their lives are about to cross.

From this award-winning and best-selling author comes a story of two young men. As Andy and his mates head inexorably towards the bloody, torturous Western Front, Henry and his mates face challenges, dangerous situations and tragedies of their own.
