Remembrance: In Flanders Fields by Norman Jorgensen

In Flanders’ Fields, set in the trenches of World War One, tells the story of a young, homesick Anzac soldier who, on Christmas morning, faces almost certain death in a seemingly hopeless attempt to rescue a robin caught in the wire of no man’s land.

Again, a book for older children. A beautiful, but difficult read.
