Summary:
"All is blissful in a peaceful French village. A group of youngsters grow up full of love and hope until war intrudes and their peace is shattered. World War I Germans invade then occupy the village, bringing mayhem, destruction and torture. The young people rebel, some successfully, others tragically. Inevitably, French troops save the town, retaking it from the Germans. A poignant, gripping story exposing the brutality of war."--Container.
