BENEATH THE POPPY FIELDS by Christopher Chance is a unique novel tackling the true story of a platoon of men from the Lancashire coalmines who were especially recruited to tunnel beneath The Somme knowing that their German counterparts were doing the same in order to blow each other to smithereens.
A heart-rending account of these brave men working deep underground, and their families left behind to grieve their loss.
This work of fiction is based on real life events and actual people including the author’s grandfather who is the main character in the novel.
These men mostly paid the ultimate price to help secure the freedom we all take for granted today.
Lest We Forget.
