Children and war make for a hard life, but your MC showed there is still a place for gentleness and compassion even in the face of hard times. Well written story.

This grabbed me from the beginning and held me to the ending. Loved your MC and the big heart he had for his "brothers". I shuddered over the ages of these boys--war is so ugly. Your writing was descriptive, creative and worth the recognition it received. Great work.
