Wilhelm is in love with an English woman, Sam, and presses a photograph into Hal's hand - if he makes it home, Hal must promise to find Sam and give her this token of affection. Hal does make it home, though the war rages on - but the moment he sees Sam he is in trouble.

With Wilhelm's shadow looming over their relationship, and his photograph never revealed, Hal begins to live a life that was meant for someone else ...

It took me two attempts to get into it, but the second attempt went well - I got through it in one sitting. There were some areas of historical inaccuracy that slightly niggled, but the story was compelling and I found it easy to sympathise with the characters.
