We Will Remember Them
The Lost Soldier by Diney Costeloe is a marvellous contemporary and historical novel being set in both the first world war and 2001. It is a remarkable novel as facts are woven into fiction. It is the tale of a lost generation of men in the futility of war.
Every man killed in battle had a name and a face. “He may be unknown but he gave his life as surely as did the others.” Journalist Rachel searches out the story behind the unknown soldier in the ash grove memorial.
Diney Costeloe shows the horrors of war. The soldiers were little more than boys. They fought for our freedoms. They left behind their lives and their loves. They faced horrors. They had to live for today as tomorrow was uncertain. “We have to live for now… there may not be a tomorrow.”
