Fact and fiction
11 November 2007 | by sgtlowdonSee all my reviews

Absolute rubbish to say Toplis was at the supposed mutiny, as his Regiment was on its way to India at the time of the Etaples disturbance. He may have had a colourful life, but was a rapist, thief and coward. He spent many months in various jails and prisons, say little if any front line action, and shot at unarmed policemen to ensure his freedom when cornered or in danger of capture by the authorities. Worthy of a movie, or plaudits? I would say there are many more events, characters and unsung heroes far more deserved of book/celluloid immortality. The film is a fantasy in the true Hollywood/Walt Disney style, entertaining but complete fiction. Watch in the same manner as Blackadder Goes Forth!
