As five men set off for the unknown horrors that await in the trenches of France, four women face their own unique challenges back home in uncertain times.
Will Annie cope with bringing up her young family on her own, in a city under bombardment, while fearing for her husband Tommy's safe return?
What will Pete's whirlwind wedding to Maggie mean for both their futures as she takes on new responsibilities for the War Office, while he dices with danger abroad?
Is Rebecca joining the Nursing Corps and heading to the front line, the good opportunity that Mickey hopes it will be for the two of them?
Who has the more dangerous job? Rifleman Davy or his young wife Daisy, working tirelessly in the munitions factory.
For green recruit Herbie, suspiciously young and naive, will war be the exciting adventure that he hopes will change his so-far sheltered existence?
