Thirteen-year-old Joe Henry tricked his way into the army to bring his father home, but fighting in the Great War has been tougher than he could have ever imagined. One night, he's tasked with guarding a railway carriage in the middle of a forest – inside the carriage, very important people are making very important decisions… Finally, an armistice is signed – the war is over!

Joe may have survived World War One, but the danger isn't over yet.
