whether fact or not,moral is in the message.
Whether the events portrayed at Passchendale are true or not exactly accurate,this is still moving and emotive drama.Maybe useful as a training manual on how not to treat recruits, as bullying and brutality can still raise their ugly heads.Everyone has a breaking point and rather than instilling pride the Redcaps degraded and abused to the extent the soldiers were stripped of their dignity and had nothing to lose in mutiny.The drama certainly gets the viewer on the side of Percy Topliss,i was urging his escape from the pernicious official Woodhall.Whether mutiny jeopardised the allied cause,the underlying themes showed the complexity of the situation and how discipline stretched to inhumanity can backfire.
