A Son of War

Melvyn Bragg

The sequel to Bragg’s novel A Soldier’s Return, a moving account of the struggles, social and psychological, faced by a Burma veteran returning to Cumbrian life. The endearing Joe is the ’son of war’, torn between being ’Sam’s lad’ and ’Ellen’s boy’, the fledgling boxer or the budding pianist.
