Bombs are exploding, guns are firing, poisonous gases fill the air and surround helpless soldiers, not only fighting for their country but also for their lives. The time is 1917. The time of World War 1. Allan McBride is right in the middle of all of it. Allan McBride has fought in some of World War 1’s bloodiest battles. Amiens, Passchendaele and Ypres are the places of some of the worst battles that Allan McBride has had to take place in. Those things, however are not on Allan's mind right now. He is currently just outside Amiens, awaiting his death.
The night before Allan McBride will die...
Am I to be shot and killed tomorrow for desertion?
I'm afraid so.
Please make sure my diary gets to my mom and dad after I die.
That's a relief.
Ken? What are you doing here?
I told the authorities that when you "deserted" you were only trying to help Bob and you didn't realize what you were doing.
You may go home now!
