BENEATH THE POPPY FIELDS is a unique book because it’s about the Lancashire miners in their own subterranean war in the tunnels beneath the German front lines during the Battle of The Somme.
This is a totally gripping, terrifyingly real account of the claustrophobic horrendous endeavours to undermine the Germans and blow them to hell, which is what they did!
Their sacrifice was for our freedom.
So I will wear my poppy with pride for my grandfather who was killed in action during the Battle of The Somme and who was the inspiration for me to write this book.
