Red Poppies

Adele’s father, the eminent Doctor Mansell Owen, shook his head sadly and announced, “This should be the war to end all wars. Germany and Austria-Hungary took a gamble that went badly wrong. 1914 saw a premeditated war of combat and conquest. It’s a conflict they thought would be sorted out by now, but instead, it’s taken a savage loss of life.”

Evan and Lily’s only son, Joshua Thomas Davies, was killed overseas, on the first day of the Battle of the Somme in 1916. That day had seen a tremendous amount of casualties, 60,000 in all, of whom 20,000 had died. ~ Red Poppies by Lynette Rees
