This book portrays the sacrifice of those who served in the First World War from 1914–1918. A story that honours those who forfeited everything for their king and country, My Son the Soldier is aimed at young adults and older and aims for rigorous historical accuracy. This book includes images which are integral in setting the scene, and which will captivate the attention of the reader. This book is written as if from the perspective of those captured in the pictures and seeks to understand their attempts to come to terms with what they have witnessed and endured.

This book asks profound and challenging questions of the reader and, more importantly, seeks to draw out the human side, and the human cost, of the First World War. Drawing on historical scholarship, while approaching these traumatic events from a deeply human perspective, this book will both fascinate and inspire the reader.


Paul’s previous writing history consists of a children’s fantasy adventure book, Dragon Slayers. He is currently working on its sequel.

His wider portfolio also consists of plays, radio, comedy and film scripts.
