Captain Tom Barnes is leading British troops in a war zone. On all sides of this conflict, people are about to be caught up in the violence....We see the characters not as they see themselves but as all the objects surrounding them do: shoes and boots, a helmet, a drone, a bag of fertilizer, a medal, a beer glass, dog tags, an exploding IED and the medical implements that are subsequently employed.

"It is a novel of concentrated ferocity and chilling accomplishments, tense and unflinching but alive to every nuance of feeling." (Hilary Mantel)

There are no listener reviews for this title yet.
A unique, immersive and utterly compelling portrait of battle and survival. Emotionally charged, gripping and human.
Such a moving book. The way it's written as objects around BA5799 is cleverly done.
Using inanimate objects to describe events, thoughts and emotions makes the narration even more poignant. Inspiring, eye opening, insightful, refreshing, incredible.
