The Red Poppy
Five minutes... Two minutes.... Young soldier Jim McLeod waits in the trenches of World War I for the order to attack the enemy. With him are his friends and Nipper, the messenger dog. When they charge across no-man’s land Jim is shot ... and finds himself face to face with an enemy soldier.
A sensitively-written war story that shows the similarities between men on both sides. Includes CD with hauntingly beautiful song.
