For some reason this series is has not been repeated as often as many other inferior dramas which appear on T.V. at present. mainly set in the trenches of the First World War, it follows the life of the leader of the main British mutiny - Percy Toplis. Its cast is first rate, most of the main actors have spread their wings well, and the music is haunting for want of a better word.
If you do get a chance to see this, then watch it. Not a gore fest or flag waver. It does show some of the brutality in a early 20th century army, akin to the first half of Full Metal Jacket. Its the sort of film which can leave a lasting impression with you!
