In the middle of World War I, nine British soldiers caught behind enemy lines seek refuge in a complex network of German trenches. What they soon discover is that they aren't alone - and it isn't a German soldier that's hunting them down.
Many of the most horrific images in the film were inspired by a book called 'The Covenant of War'.
Sgt. David Tate:
All right, boys lets get this trench secure.
Pfc. Charlie Shakespeare: Sarge.
Pvt. Thomas Quinn: Yes, sergeant.
Pvt. Jack Hawkstone: Yes, sarge.
Pvt. Barry Starinski: Fuckin' hell, sarge.
The British soldiers use the Lee-Enfield No.4 MK I. The trials version of this rifle was not made until the late-'20s and early 30's. Full production of this rifle did not begin until 1941.
