Summary
A group of young British soldiers are on the eve of the Battle of the Somme, the worst defeat in British military history. At the center of the troops is 17-year-old Billy Macfarlane with his older brother Eddie who have volunteered for service. Like their fellow squad members, they are boys dressed as men. Their survival is in the hands of war-hardened Sergeant Winter and bookish Lieutenant Harte. When word comes the squad will join the first wave of attacks, they all face an equal fate.
