Blood patches left in fields, where fallen soldiers last rest. New Zealand joined the Great War on October 16th, 1914, until it ended on the 11th hour, 11th day, 11th month, of 1918. Many sons and fathers of New Zealanders lost their lives in that war. 

Many came home with blood RED bandages around their heads, arms, torsos and legs, with others still in shock from watching their comrades.

Those who survived the war, suffer from the trauma of being badly wounded, and hearing the sound of guns.

In present day, we will always remember them by the poppy fields.

  2. I really like this because you have based this on the world war. If I had to rate this out of 10 I would rate this a 10 out of 10!

  3. I really liked your writing. I thought it was incredibly descriptive. This is really beautiful. The only thing I would say is that it was a bit scary, but I understand how that was necessary. You are an amazing writer, and keep it up! Great job!
