Reviews

"Warren Miller" Mr. Knowles has something to say about youth and war that few contemporary novelists have attempted to say and none has said better.
"The Observer" A model of restraint, deeply felt and beautifully written.
"National Review" A masterpiece.
Aubrey Menen I think it is the best-written, best-designed, and most moving novel I have read in many years. Beginning with a tiny incident among ordinary boys, it ends by being as deep and as big as evil itself.
