What happens when a frail, young “school swot” becomes a British officer in the trenches of the First World War? Well, he has to learn hard and fast if he wants to keep his head free from bullet holes! But don’t judge this book by the cover, he shares his wacky ideas on strategy while his loyal sergeant and Gurkha comrades show him a thing or two about brawn. In the end, they might just make a soldier out of that officer.
