    i cant remember its name but i remember it's a book about war. the front cover of the book i think had a picture of a lake (perhaps it had 'north' or 'lake' in its name?)

    it was a really sad book about how two brothers become soldiers (and one of them steal the others girlfriend) and one dies at the end , so the other one carries on fighting for him in war despite hating him for stealing his lover.

    it's a really sad book and it had a profound impact on me when i read it when I was 13. i really want to rediscover it but i just cant remember the name?!
