And although Tom is envious of his elder brother he soon changes his mind as the reality of war becomes more apparent. Tom is almost 13 years old. We follow Jacks story through his letters home and through the eyes of his younger brother. Tom writes about life at home in New Zealand: living with Mum and their young sister, Amy, learning to hunt with his uncle, getting a puppy and learning to knitfor the war effort. Jack writes of his first-hand experience in Trentham, the troopship, Britain, France, the Battle of Messines and finally, Passchendaele. Sadly the story ends with Jack being killed at Passchendaele along with hundreds of other Kiwis. (Of the 180 soldiers in the 2nd Otago Division, 148 lost their lives in one day in New Zealands worst ever military disaster.) When Our Jack Went to War is a fictional account of a real life tragedy. It is based on the authors research into the death of her own great uncle who died in 1917.
