The Western Front is a wasteland of barbed wire, shell craters and mud-filled trenches. Winston Churchill, searching for a solution to the stalemate, commits the Allies to a disastrous Gallipoli campaign.
As men on both sides die in droves, miners and mill-workers work tirelessly for the war effort while families confront the broken bodies of returning soldiers. Torn apart by war, the old way of life is vanishing.
The second in Stewart Binns's acclaimed Great War Series, The Darkness and the Thunder is a sweeping story of war, following five families through the terrifying conditions of the Western Front, the slaughter of Gallipoli and the heartbreak of those left at home.
