"Ive had nearly 18 years of yesterdays and tomorrows, and tonight I must remember as many of them as I can. Tonight more than any other night of my life, I want to feel alive.”
Private Peaceful relives the life of Thomas Peaceful, a young WW1 soldier awaiting the firing squad at dawn. During the night he looks back on his short but joyful past growing up in rural Devon; his exciting first days at school, the accident in the school that killed his father, his adventures with Molly, the love of his life and his battles of the injustice of war that brought him to the front line.
