To call the line a trench is rather kind. It's really just a ditch scraped through the mud, filled to my ankles with foul, brown water no-man's-land that's even worse in daylight than it is in darkness. Flat, black, broken by shells, it is divided by coils of barbed wire that glisten in the sun, going on and on as far as I can see. Scattered across this no-man's-land lie men who seem to be sleeping, all flung about in the mud. A leg pokes up from here, a head from there.

The nutcracker men were hidden in the dark shadows of the tree and the wall, but the moonlight gleamed on my Frenchmen and my Tommie. he guns in France pounded away with their faint little thunder, and I thought that my real dad would be just like my model, wide awake, watching the sky. This was one of those rare, wonderful books that you read without knowing anything about. I give this book 4/5 to 5/5 very memorable and interesting from melancholy perspectives.

The book I chose was called Lord of the Nutcracker Men. My Opinion of this book is that it was pretty good. I thought it was sad because so many people died. Every country in the world will have it translated. And every human being will know it. Too high praise for a book that so few people (let alone librarians and booksellers) have heard of? Not at all. The amount of reception a book receives is not always indicative of how good it is. And this book is good.

He fears he controls his father’s fate, the lives of all the soldiers in no-man’s land, and the outcome of the war itself.

This is a very interesting book for middle school students about WWI. It is definitely anti-war and depicts how war destroys the lives of families involved in war even if they are not under attack. There is a great deal of symbolism in the novel which is difficult for the average middle schooler to comprehend.

One of the most profound little works of fiction about WW1. Discussed at length in book Mixing Memory and Desire: Why Literature Can't Forget the Great War.

With Lord of the Nutcracker Men Iain Lawrence provides readers with an engaging story that focuses on how war, through the experiences of Johnny Briggs's and his family, affects its participants and those left behind. In addition, lovers of historical fiction will find that Lawrence's work accurately reflects the time period in which he sets the novel. Using letters from the front, though fictional, Lawrence cogently blends Johnny's experiences with those of his mother's and father's efforts to, in their own way, contribute to the war effort providing readers with a panoramic view the conflict. Lord of the Nutcracker Men, I think, represents a worthwhile read for those who enjoy history, fiction, or a combination of the two.

I felt this book was well written and told a good story about a family being directly impacted by war. It is told somewhat by Johnny but also through his Aunti Ivy. The symbolism that is used in the carved figures by his father is great. The author describes some the conditions of trench warfare to give some ides. Overall it will keep your attention and wanting to learn more about the that event WWI.
Good one
