"Perhaps the hero of this novel is the ordinary fighting soldier, though, dogged, enduring, joking sourly at discomfort and danger, unconsciously commanding a dignity which lifts him above the disasters that beset him.  Perhaps the hero is Lieutenant Vern Radcliffe, between whom and his vivacious wife Dinah is such strength of love that wars and separations cannot shake it.  But among them Sergeant Jack Savanna, a hard and reckless man in love with the beautiful Silver Bendixter, and Sergeant Greg Morley, V.C., whose marriage is crumbling."
