Historical background

South of Bois des Caures lay the village of Beaumont. The 208th Regiment occupied the village and had almost completed an intermediate trench line that ran directly through the village, just before the German attacked. Storming forward toward the buildings over the open ground, Germans casualties were starting to mount. As darkness fell, both sides were embroiled in house-to-house fighting.

The stage is set, the battle lines are drawn, and you are in command. The rest is history.

I saw them tie a soldier to a cartwheel with his arms outstretched as a punishment. I also knew of men who did themselves in. British soldiers weary of sitting in the trenches who cut their throats during leave. If order hadn't been maintained, they would have deserted. They were coerced. When you're in the army, you can't just do whatever you want. ~~~ Gaston Boudry, in the Belgian book 'Van den Grooten Oorlog' ~~~
