Buchbeschreibung Wheeler Pub Inc. Hardcover. Buchzustand: Very Good. Zustand des Schutzumschlags: very good. 158724232X Book Description "I have a rendezvous with death, at some disputed barricade." Alan Seeger, 1916 In the first days of World War I four soldiers, left behind as the British army retreated through northern France under the first German onslaught, fo und themselves trapped on the wrong side of the Western Front, in a tiny vi llage called Villeret.

The leader of the band, Robert Digby, was a striking young man who fell in love with Claire Dessenne, the prettiest maid in the village.
