To help its Belgian and French allies Britain sent a Contemptible little Army. It performed magnificently and, despite appalling casualties, helped stem the German tide. This is the chronicle of events that befell one of its battalions, the 1st Norfolks, in the first ten months of the war. Viewed through the eyes of soldiers, it is a compelling tale of their lives, loves, fears and feelings. It is the story of Thomas, without whom none of it would have been possible.
