This harrowing journey through World War I begins aboard the RMS Lusitania and ends on the edge of the world. For the Scots-American McReynolds brothers, World War I began with a German torpedo that s... lammed into the Lusitania. Despite frantic rescue efforts, they watch their family drown in front of their eyes. Having escaped the doomed ship in frigid waters off Ireland, they are rescued by four young Irishmen and together they vow to strike back in the war that was cutting a bloody swath through Europe in 1915. Searching for a unit that was bound to see action, they enlist with the vaunted Seaforth Highlanders, a Scottish regiment with a fearsome reputation. Soon they are tossed into the bloody cauldron of Gallipoli, where they must learn to fight and struggle to survive in one of the most ill-conceived and brutal campaigns of the war. Under a baking Aegean sun, surrounded by dead and maimed comrades, and facing a brutal and determined enemy sworn to Jihad, the brothers discover crucial differences in their reactions to the carnage of infantry combat. In the reeking, bloody trenches of Gallipoli, war becomes a very ugly school--where few live long enough to graduate. Praise for A Distant Field: [The] attention to detail, sentence-for-sentence, is stunning, and really builds the world. -Cornerstones The author has managed to avoid many of the pitfalls of a debut author and is to be commended....Overall this is a highly promising text.... --Jefferson Franklin .. .a really imaginative and convincing plot...a great eye for period and military detail....an impressive achievement. --Wade & Co
