Book Description
I never imagined I would die this way. Young, surrounded by thousands, yet alone and far away from home. I thought I would be afraid, but Iím not. The pain in my chest has dulled to a mild ache. Maybe if I close my eyes Iíll see my home, see Mom one last time. Sheíll be upset if I donít say goodbye. Dad will understand the sacrifice I made for king and country. And little Joanie. Sheíll miss me the most, I think. I open my eyes and my breath comes out as a shudder. Can I still be here among the dead and dying in this barren place? This no manís land? Ė Private Ronald Marrie, Beaumont Hamel, July 1, 1916

Ron Marrie of St. Johnís enlisted with the Newfoundland Regiment in 1914 to join those who were fighting overseas in war-torn Europe. The Tin Triangle follows him through recruitment, training, and his first deadly clash with the enemy at Gallipoli. But that battle would pale in comparison to the fateful morning of July 1, 1916, when Ron and his comrades went over the top to engage the enemy at Beaumont Hamel.

Ronís story, inspired by the authorís grandfather, is a tribute to the hundreds of Newfoundlanders who paid the ultimate price on foreign shores during World War I. The Tin Triangle is Linda Abbottís third book and a storytelling masterpiece.
