Megiddo's ShadowBook - 2006
Edward is sixteen and too young to enlist for World War I, but he is old enough to feel a dangerous combination of emotions: revenge--against the Germans who killed his older brother; and romanticism--about the glory and heroism that Edward feels are the ideals of war.To his disappointment, Edward is assigned horse-training duty in England, far from the front lines, where he is consoled only by his horse and the friendship of a young nurse. Things change when he is sent to fight in Palestine, where he finds that the horrors of war and the real meaning of courage are nothing like what he imagined.Intelligent, provocative and as powerful as any cavalry charge, Megiddo's Shadow deserves every accolade.
