Michel and Henry Go To War (by Avan Stallard)

Erstwhile Almanacker Avan Stallard has decamped to Spain, living out his ambition to become a full-time writer.

He has just published what he unashamedly calls an “… old fashioned book … a warry (WWI), mix of action and old-school adventure, speckles of humour”.

A Frenchman in the British Army fighting Germans on the Western Front? That’d be a bastard—the illegitimate son of the French President, forbidden by father to join the fray.

Under an assumed name, Michel joins anyway. Except now he cannot escape the war that follows every step of the way as he and Henry—his comrade in arms—seek rest and recuperation in the mountains.

Instead of wine and women, they find Germans and a secret plot to destroy France’s hub of munitions production. Cut off and outnumbered, they recruit a motley army comprising a women’s auxiliary and an old farmer with a big rifle and bad attitude.

There’ll be no rest for these soldiers, not until Michel and Henry go to war.

A cracking action–adventure story for fans of Flashman and The Guns of Navarone.
