Free Remembrance Day resources for schools

Over the last four years I have written five books set during the First and Second World Wars. Over the Line, The Last Try, Flyboy, Spitfire and a new book due out in 2018.

I have developed a range of school resources linked to these books. Here’s a short summary of what is available. All are free.

First World War fiction posters.
