Andy’s school trip to the World War One battlefields is a chance to learn the history of his great-grandfather, Matt’s struggles and survival in the trenches.
Matt and his cousin James were affected differently by the story of the hero of Dargai, who they met as children. Matthew hears the melody of the fearless piper. James wants to emulate his valiant bravery. When war comes James is quick to follow the hero’s lead. Matthew, nicknamed Mac by his comrades, finds salvation through his friendship with a German POW, Hans. They discover a common bond that surpasses their country’s enmity.
Andy faces his own demons in the shape of the Squaddies, a gang of bullies who taunt him at school and on the school trip. The Anglo-German friendship echoes down the years when Andy befriends a German student, Sophe. He tells her the story of Mac’s friendship with Hans.
Can Andy find the courage to face up to the Squaddies?
