Early on Christmas morning the guns stop firing through the ruined landscape. A young soldier peers through a periscope over the top of the trench. Way out in no manís land, he sees a small red shape moving on the barbed wire. A brightly colored robin is trapped, one wing flapping helplessly. Now in paperback, In Flanders Fields tells the story of a young homesick World War I soldier who risks his life to cross the desolate space and rescue the robin from the barbed wire that separates the opposing forces in their trenches. Brian Harrison-Leverís striking artwork and Norman Jorgensenís dramatic narrative make this an eloquent, moving counterpoint to the senselessness and inhumanity of war.
