Casualties of War

Book cover of Casualties of War

Released September 2000
Publisher: BBC
By Steve Emmerson

1918. The world is at war. A terrible raging conflict that has left no one untouched.

In the North Yorkshire village of Hawkswick, it seems that the dead won't stay down. There are reports of horrifically wounded soldiers on manoeuvres in the night. Pets have gone missing, and now livestock is found slaughtered in the fields.

Suspicion naturally falls on nearby Hawkswick Hall, a psychiatric hospital for shell-shocked soldiers, where Private Daniel Cory senses a gathering evil. As events escalate, a stranger arrives on the scene.

Can this man from the Ministry solve the mystery of Hawkswick? And can Hawkswick solve the mystery that is this man from the Ministry?
