Archie is ready for some action and eager to fight. He’s disappointed he hasn’t even fired his rifle yet and can’t understand his older mates living in the trenches with him. They shake their heads at his eagerness, but won’t tell him why. Then suddenly the war is right in front of Archie when their popular captain is shot dead by a sniper. A new Captain arrives (with the nickname Mad Jack) and they soon discover why…
Archie will soon discover why his mates aren’t so keen.
