The Fighting Ground

SUMMARY ´ The Fighting Ground April 3 1778 He may be just thirteen but Jonathan knows he's ready to go to the war against the British He can handle a gun He yearns to battle. If you ve read All uiet on the Western Front you ll know what I mean when I describe this book This twenty four hour glimpse at war is not just profoundly and intensely moving to the character but to the reader as well It s sobering confusing horrible raw and gritty Simply put it s the stark realities of war stripped of its glory scenesWhen Jonathan decides to go against his father s wishes and run off to war he has glorious expectations of what battle and his exaggerated character will procure It doesn t take long for him to realize how ignorant he is and how much he just wants to be a little kid at home againBecause of the intensity of this book and the themes it conveys I would recommend it for a maturer audience than the book itself recommends It would make for a excellent family read aloud you d be able to omit the language and have some truly deep and meaningful discussionsAges 12Cleanliness over fifteen times the word dmn is used God s name is used in vain a number of times throughout the book It mentions someone peeing their pants A boy sees two dead bodies that of a man and woman and while he buries them it provides some detail of their decay Like my reviews I also have hundreds of detailed reports that I offer too These reports give a complete break down of everything in the book so you ll know just how clean it is or isn t I also have Clean Guides downloadable PDFs which enable you to clean up your book before reading it Visit my website

CHARACTERS The Fighting Ground

SUMMARY ´ The Fighting Ground Lize that in just twenty four hours his life will be forever altered by the war by his fellow soldiers and by the terrible choices he must make. The greatest strength of The Fighting Ground as I see it is in the realistic way that a twenty four hour period of combat in the times of the American Revolution is portrayed Instead of chapters the book is divided into segments of minutes on a clock as thirteen year old Jonathan finds himself overmatched and in over his head as part of a small regiment of vigilante American soldiers with a commander who will stop at nothing to gain victory for their side Though his father has been crippled fighting in the Revolutionary War Jonathan desperately wants to join the fighting himself as the book opens What could be better than playing the role of hero in defense of one s own people and nation battling to rebuff the dreaded enemy that seeks to tear down one s homeland Gardening at home in a still peaceful part of the country Jonathan longs to join the action and do some real good for his country While standing and listening one day to a military man near the local tavern calling for a few good men to help him on a vital mission Jonathan is surprised when even he at his young age is asked to partake of the operation Eager to get in on the war however he can he accepts the role offered to him and goes off with a band of ragtag soldiers to do a little fighting The next twenty four hours are vastly different than Jonathan had ever imagined The gun assigned to him is six feet long and enormously heavy yet he must bear the burden himself and keep up a fast marching speed alongside his fellow soldiers to boot When they finally do arrive at the valley where the planned ambush is to take place the target of the attack turns out to be a group of fearsome Hessian soldiers formidable German mercenaries paid by the British to fight the war in defense of King George s crown overseas The ambush doesn t go well and the American fighting force with which Jonathan has been traveling is subseuently scattered every man for himself Three Hessians catch up to Jonathan and eventually capture him and he is led along as their prisoner until they find an abandoned home at which they can spend the night Is the house truly abandoned though or is there something waiting for them at their bivouacking site Jonathan s fortunes are now inextricably tied in with those of the three Hessians that have him however they haven t hurt him at all yet and don t seem to intend him any harm When Jonathan is given the opportunity to turn the tables on his captors how far will he be willing to go to exact revenge on soldiers that he has been told are the enemy In the end on whose side does Jonathan really want to fight Avi does a nice job in The Fighting Ground of telling an historical tale without sounding like a school textbook and without pushing particular lessons onto the reader There s a lot to be learned from reading this book but any conclusions are left to each of us to draw from the story on our own Personally speaking I would say that anyone who could make it out alive after fighting in the Revolutionary War was a lucky individual indeed though the physical and mental scars might very well have lasted for the remainder of that preserved life All in all I think that The Fighting Ground is a good book and I might give it two and a half stars
