Der beste Freund: Tommo wächst mit seinem grossen Bruder Charlie anfangs des 20. Jahrhunderts in England auf. Nach dem Tod des Vaters ist Charlie der Beschützer und Freund von Tommo. Zusammen mit der Freundin Molly und dem behinderten Bruder Big Joe verbringen sie eine idyllische Kindheit, obwohl die Mutter für den Colonel arbeiten muss, um die Familie durchzubringen. Während des Ersten Weltkriegs müssen sie zur Armee. In den belgischen Schützengräben versuchen sie die Deutsche Armee zurückzudrängen. Als nach einem schweren Angriff Tommo verletzt wird, bleibt Charlie bei ihm im Schützengraben und weigert sich, dem widersinnigen Befehl des gehassten Sergeants, erneut anzugreifen, Folge zu leisten. Charlie wird in einem eilends durchgeführten Prozess zum Tode verurteilt. Tommos Erinnerungen sind ein eindrückliches Zeitdokument, das versucht, die durch ein fragwürdiges Erschiessungskommando getöteten Männer zu rehabilitieren. Ab 14 Jahren, gut, Elisabeth Tschudi-Moser.

The Great War: From Memory to History offers a new look at the multiple ways the Great War has been remembered and commemorated through the twentieth century and into the twenty-first. Drawing on contributions from history, cultural studies, film, and literary studies this collection offers fresh perspectives on the Great War and its legacy at the local, national, and international levels. More importantly, it showcases exciting new research on the experiences and memories of “forgotten” participants who have often been ignored in dominant narratives or national histories. Contributors to this international study highlight the transnational character of memory-making in the Great War’s aftermath. No single memory of the war has prevailed, but many symbols, rituals, and expressions of memory connect seemingly disparate communities and wartime experiences. With groundbreaking new research on the role of Aboriginal peoples, ethnic minorities, women, artists, historians, and writers in shaping these expressions of memory, this book will be of great interest to readers from a variety of national and academic backgrounds.
