The Boy Allies with the Cossacks Reviews
Claire W. Hayes' novel, "The Boy Allies With The Cossacks" is what I would consider to b e a great piece of fictional literature. While reading this story, I had to keep telling myself to analyze certain characteristics and to stop getting pulled into the plot so deeply. Claire's dramatization, though not at all accurate, was easy to be pulled into. The ability to create a completely new world while staying within the physical confines of this one is a true art. There are many learning opportunities from reading this novel. Hayes' ability to convey emotions is impressive. Too many times I stood up, raving, because I was excited that Marquis lived through a difficult situation or that Hal and Chester made it out again. Being able to take a historical subject, such as World War 1, and create an entire realm based on real places but adding fictional characters and make it interesting and alive is Hayes' true gift. The book shows World War 1 in a way that I doubt many other books could ever match. I have never considered myself an intellectual reader; however, I would recommend this book to many of my friends and go as far as to branch out and read other books written by Claire W. Hayes.
I found several "Boy Allies " books as a young teenager in a dusty antique shop and took them home. I remember thinking even then what pure propaganda they were but they were fun. Totally NOT PC but remember when it was written.
