The year is 1911 in the South of England. Five schoolmates wangle an invitation to a lord's estate and unwittingly set off a chain of events that will seal their fate in the coming World War.

*From the disastrous Battle of Ypres to the butchery of The Somme...
*From the inner sanctum of a secret Army operation to embroilment with a spy and Winston Churchill's "backroom boys"...
*From the doldrums of trench warfare to the unearthing of a a German plot against America...

Throughout it all, someone behind the scenes appears to be pulling strings as these lads struggle to survive in a world of war and political intrigue. Will The Bottom Five survive, or will they be among the millions sacrificed on the field of battle?
