We follow a cast of extraordinary characters who, one after another, fall, some to bounce back with almost superhuman resilience, others to die at the incompetent hands of the Army's surgeons. The Army's leading personalities are a collection of eccentrics; some were short-sighted, some downright criminal. But not one of them doubted the British would win, no matter how dire the odds - and this is why they ultimately prevailed.
