This class play deals with the background to and causes of the First World War, along with its progression and conclusion. It highlights the plight of the soldiers suffering the horrendous conditions in the trenches and the appaling waste of life. The subject, whilst tragic, is dealt with in factual yet sensitive way - the ending showing how good can come from evil.
