This is only the first of many dilemmas that Peter Lamb and his
troop must face during the chaotic first months of World War Two.
After becoming cut off from the rest of their regiment, and
assigned a mission that takes them deep into France behind the
fast-moving enemy lines, the cracks begin to appear.
