Where are the others? Has he been left behind? And if he doesn't find his unit, is he a deserter?Love; cowardice; trust; forgiveness.How will any of us behave when we are pushed to extremes?'A great achievement...To take on the First World War as so very many have done and make it fresh is remarkable.'
