A fictionalised account of the real-life British soldier who let Hitler live in the First World War, and his attempt to put right his mistake – from a master storyteller
‘Brilliant. Historical fiction at its most magnificent’ Jackie French
Billy Byron was one of the most decorated privates of the First World War, recognised for his unrivalled bravery. But what if it were possible to save one too many lives?
As a soldier, Billy spared the life of a man after a battle in 1918. But when he later recognises him as Hitler, Billy is haunted by his own kindness and attempts to change the course of history. But going against his nature might prove harder than Billy expected, even when it means stopping evil in its tracks. . .
