Thomas, Francesco, Peter, and Windy all had different reasons for joining the Army. As soldiers, they had little say in what went on in the world, or even where they went. The world wasn’t a fair one; they knew that. The world had avoided many crises which might have led to war, but didn’t. The last, in 1914, was perhaps the nearest miss. Seven years on and, in all probability, another crisis will emerge.
Not that the four friends have any say in the matter. Nonetheless, they know that the world isn’t fair, and they have a strong belief that it should be. It doesn’t seem that there is much they can do from their lowly position, especially as it seems that another crisis is brewing, one which might lead to a major conflict.
This is the first book in the Building Jerusalem series.
