This Just In… War and Chance by Kerin Freeman

Conscripted into the army in 1940, 18-year-old Thomas Collins is sent to France where he witnesses and takes part in horrors far beyond his imagination.

Shell shocked and wounded, he leaves Dunkirk on the destroyer Havant. Thomas’ recovery in Netley Hospital is slow and images of a brutal war refuse to leave his fragile state of mind, especially his bloody slaying of a German soldier. Wounded and shell-shocked, Thomas is taken off the beach at Dunkirk and sent back to England to recuperate.

The boy who left England to fight in France has disappeared and in his place is the husk of a man who wears a mask in the company of the people who care for him. Not long after bombs begin to fall on Southampton, tragedy strikes. Heartbroken and bent on revenge, Thomas enlists the aid of his army mates and goes looking for trouble.
