it is NOT "my brother sam is dead," which is the only thing that comes up when i google it.

it was about two brothers -- possibly twins. one of them goes into war and i think dies, and the other brother takes his place and/or has to deal with it. i remember it being pretty current -- the war wasn't a long time ago. i don't remember there being many other characters other than the brothers.

Glad it's found! :) Michael Morpurgo is a good author; have read a few of his, though not that one.
