Synopsis

Another First World War tale from War Horse author Michael Morpurgo, this gut-wrenching drama focuses on two brothers, Tommo and Charlie Peaceful and their journey from the idyllic English countryside to the hell of no-man’s-land. There is a terrible injustice at the heart of this story which has haunted many families in real life: the execution of soldiers for cowardice. This makes for gripping viewing and carries a genuine emotional impact – you’ll want to know more about this fascinating and tragic issue.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
