9781405915175: The Shadow of War (The Great War)

The first novel in a new series which will see a book release for each year of World War I—perfect for fans of Conn Iggulden and Bernard Cornwell

June, 1914:
The beginning of another long, prosperous summer for Britain. But beneath the clear skies, all is not as it seem—as the chill wind of social discontent swirls around this sceptered isle. Shots ring out in a distant European land—the assassination of a foreign aristocrat. From that moment the entire world is propelled into a conflict unlike any seen before. This is the story of five British communities, their circumstances very different, but who will all share in the tragedy that is to come. All that they have known will be changed forever by the catastrophic events of World War I. This is a story of love and comradeship, of hatred and tragedy—this is the story of World War I.

About the Author :

Stewart Binns has won a BAFTA, a Grierson, an RTS, and a Peabody for his documentaries. He is the author of Anarchy, Conquest, and Crusade.

Review :

“Anyone with even a vague interest in Britain and the Great War should read Shadow of War.”  —Celia Sandys, granddaughter of Winston Churchill
 

“An epic . . . the book on the conflict remembered this year 100 years on.” —Sunday Sport

 

"Stewart Binns has produced a real page-turner, a truly stunning adventure story.”  —Alastair Campbell, journalist
 

“A fascinating mix of fact, legend and fiction . . . this is storytelling at its best.”  —Daily Mail

 

“Stewart's books always leave me with a sense of pride for my country, and this book is no exception, but this is tempered by the individual courage and the individual loss. The personal tales that inspire and horrify in equal measure. By the time I finished the book I felt entertained and educated, which for me form the key pillars of a great Historical Fiction novel. Once again Stewart Binns has managed to create something unique, entertaining and eye-opening, I'm very much looking forward to book 2.”  —Robin Carter, Parmenion Books



“The whole thing is a tour de force of writing brilliance, and it's great to know that in five years' time, Stewart will have delivered a book for each of the first world war years. A totally enjoyable experience, a brilliant start to a terrific project.”  —Books Monthly
 

“Truly a book that educates while entertaining, a talent of this best-selling author.”  —Historical Novel Review

"fast-paced, thrilling, and absolutely spectacular" --San Francisco Book Review, 3/14/2016
