The nightmare of World War I is memorably captured in this powerful drama. Private Arthur Hamp is a young British soldier who is accused of deserting while in the trenches of Passchendale, Belgium. With every other member of his batallion now dead, he is to be defended by Captain Hargreaves - an officer who at first despises Hamp for what he judges to be his cowardice, but who later comes to sympathise with the younger soldier. With almost all the film featuring just these two characters - brilliantly played by Tom Courtenay and Dirk Bogarde - this is a tough film, but also a highly compelling one.
Based on the World War I experience of soldier-poet Siegfried Sassoon, who suffered a mental breakdown on realising there was no point to the fighting
