1914 by James Farner Book Summary

It’s 1914 and the great powers of Europe are on the brink of war. In Holbeck, Leeds, the Keeton family struggles to get by on their meagre wages. The six Keeton brothers couldn’t be more different, but the outbreak of World War I puts their lives on hold and sets them on a course of destruction.

Danny Keeton drags his identical twin brother Charlie off to war with the idea that this will be one great adventure. At the tender age of fourteen, he soon discovers war is no place for boys. With the sadistic Sergeant Archibald Braddock and the tender Corporal Nathan Dettmer alongside them, the only goal is to stay alive long enough to make it back home.

But how many of the brothers will survive the first brutal year of the bloodiest conflict in human history?

Great book. This is an interesting story regarding the life of young boys on the front line during the great war. As soon as I started could not put it down. Definitely looking forward to book two.


Full of grit. Great novel.. As far as historical fiction goes, this felt startlingly realistic, which is great and what good historical fiction should be. Set before WW1, some British brothers enlist in the army thinking it's going to be a grand time. Not so much. It goes without saying that this period in history was an especially bleak and tragic one, and yes, that thread wraps around the main characters here but the book is enthralling and a real work of historical expertise. The action is intense, visceral and gritty. Great writing too. Flowed well. Don't be surprised if you choke up. Great book.

Cliff hanger. Definitely grew fond of the characters and will be reading the second book.

Excellent. Loved this book but just felt it to be a little short. Will definitely continue with the series.

Addictive. I got so into this book so quickly but ended quite abruptly for me and was far too short but kept me hooked and I really enjoyed it. I will definitely need to continue reading the rest of them.
