Nigel Hopkins finds himself in the trenches of World War I under the command of a teenage atheist, Second Lieutenant C.S Lewis. Nigel and his war dog must learn the source of true courage while facing a desperate enemy in No Man's Land in the final offensive of the war. Meanwhile, underage WAAC Elsie Fleming, working at the field hospital in Etaples, will have her idealism about war challenged by brutal realities she sees in the broken men who return from the front and the many who never return.

Douglas Bond is author of more than twenty books of historical fiction, biography, devotion, and theology, including two adult novels translated and published by Dutch publishing houses. Bond and his wife Cheryl have been married for more than thirty years and have two daughters, four sons, and two granddaughters.



War in the Wasteland is proof positive of what I have known for many years now: Douglas Bond is a great storyteller. Indeed, this novel combines all the attributes of a can’t-put-it-down thriller with the intellectual tensions of a historical drama: taut plotting, strong characters, and soaring backdrops. Put this one on the top of your must-read list.” – George Grant, author, teacher, pastor at Parish Presbyterian Church

“Douglas Bond is a historian with unusual insight.” – Russ Pulliam, Indianapolis Star

War in the Wasteland gives a back story of the pre-Christian Lewis, a literate atheist arguing against God in the trenches of the Great War. A non-nostalgic glimpse of war, Bond’s characters bring historical life and color to the human costs in WWI, without romanticizing its brutality.” – Mike T. Sugimoto, Professor of Asian Studies and Great Books, Pepperdine University

“Douglas Bond is one of my family’s favorite authors. A new Bond book produces a thrill of anticipation around our table. His latest, War in the Wasteland – a compelling, emotive story – lives up to this reputation.” – Ray Van Neste, Chair of Biblical Studies, Union University
