I lean my face on the damp, gritty wall of sandbags. The barrage of the shells exploding around us sets up echoes in my chest. Men and boys nearby are sheltering as best they can from the impact of the pounding guns and the rain of mud, praying that the missiles will miss them. Some have excavated dugouts, but I prefer to be out in the open. There are engineers who dig tunnels under the German lines and set explosives underneath the trenches across the other side of no man’s land. Sometimes things go wrong and the miners are blown up, or buried alive under the clagging clay of Flandersfields. Maybe there are German engineers digging their way towards our trenches right now.

Andy’s investigations into his great-grandfather Matt’s struggle for survival in the World War One trenches lead him to uncover a mystery – why and how did Matt become friends with a German soldier? A school trip is a chance to find out more…if he can find the money to go.

But Andy has struggles of his own in the shape of the Squaddies, a gang of bullies determined to make his life a misery. Can learning about the past and making an unexpected friendship of his own give Andy the courage to face up to them?
