Morlancourt, Northern France, 1920. In the aftermath of the war, when most Allied soldiers have either left this world or returned home to their loved ones, a small contingent remain in Northern France. Charged with the identification and burial of innumerable corpses and remains, these men perform a terrible and necessary duty. But not everyone sees it that way and not everyone is as keen as Captain James Reid to ensure the dead are rightly honoured. With his trademark unerring precision, Robert Edric explores the - too often forgotten - work done by the fit and the healthy in the wake of the Great War.
