4th August 1914. Britain declares war on Germany.
Private Thomas Millward is surrounded by death and looking straight into hell. Normal human kindness has been absent in his life for a while, but he has a choice to make. A choice that all humans must make when in the wake of death.
Will his memories of life remember the brutality and desperate actions humans will take in the world of war? Will war, blood, revenge, anger, hatred and hunter be his last thoughts?
Or will he remember the bravery, kindness and courage of friends, brothers and even childhood enemies?
