The First and The Last eBook

"John Parr and George Ellison, two soldiers of the Great War, lost their lives on the same narrow lane in Belgium.  They now lie together, quite by chance, in a quiet French cemetery.  Separated by four years of war and over a million dead, their deaths marked the beginning and the end of the bloodiest conflict in history.."
