about this item

The Major and Miner is the thought-provoking story of Mathew, a young miner's son who enlists in WW1 in the final year of the war. We follow him through the horrors of battle and watch as he tries to build a better life for himself with the help of his mentor, Peter Church, his commanding officer in the war. Their adventures are dangerous, funny, and exciting, and ultimately it is a story of their friendship and how they both help each other recover and move on from the horrors of the war.
The book also highlights the hypocrisy of the WWI tactics, and sheds light on the class differences present at the time and how this affected the outcome of the war. We see how Mathew navigates these unforeseen difficulties, from being mistaken for Church's servant to standing up to an army general and proving that his birth cannot limit him when he sets his heart on something.
