It is the story of one young lieutenant, Mark Evison, alongside his diary account of life in the patrol base with his platoon, written up to two days before he died, and then their wonderful bravery as his comrades brought him home, after he was badly injured during a Taliban ambush.

It is also the story of his family and friends at home, how his death impacted on them, and how his mother began to understand what modern war death means. It includes a fascinating account of the four day inquest and of his mother s trip to Afghanistan, partly to see what he died for.

It is a universal story of a mother and a son, but also a very particular account of how it is now. Mick Brown called it A deeply moving and thought-provoking work, written with care, elegance, a meticulous attention to detail and - shining through on every page - the profound love of a mother for her son. This is an important book, which makes an invaluable contribution to the debate about what were doing in Afghanistan, and the responsibility of government to ensure that our troops are properly supplied and cared for.

Charles Moore wrote the Foreword, and tells us that Having seen some of the country and experienced war death, Margaret Evison is a in a powerful position to write about it and its consequences. Death of a Soldier is a remarkable work: moving from the personal to the wider picture, it addresses some important national issues.
