time not maneuvers no of course and I feel I have to protest it oh yes well I would like to understand why my son decides to protest his superiors orders father once a man has been to the front yes it's time you have a leave you feel differently at home you'll see Oh euros sister sense of this regards oh how is poor Lizabeth just heard from him he's a battalion adjutant already he's a first-class soldier yes Paul would never protest in his day sorry father I've always been a black sheep of the family you're like your mother don't worry I'll explain something to my commanding

to ask her to come in for meals don't you I have repeatedly said I was against tactical field modernization but once the plan was adopted we all had to comply it was an order but it made enormous demands on our resources it was very costly and once it was discontinued our offensive was stopped and here we are quite right general in the midst of war attack is always the best of time even the Socialists understand that Caesar's advisors is mine too you might at least talk to Bridget it's only because of you that she came Bridget you've grown into a nice young woman haven't you yes Sally

wanted to tell you I'll go on studying papa says it'll be all right it's you're subject to medicine how is morale at the front high certainly high it's difficult to be happy sir if you're spending three months in a trench that's right this trench warfare German soldiers don't like it is between the attack and battle there are none finer as you worried long about yes you're a lucky man to have been there Holly you're right sir I have been lucky I'm lucky I lived there aren't many men who did yes yes that's the point of view what is it Tina I'm begging your pardon a lady's hair she would

civilian he'll never really be a soldier not my little brother anywhere we know his heart set on medicine yes only I believe that once he put on a uniform excuse me he says and leaves his superior standing but father a bereaved mother of a fallen comrade he must try to console her surely that's not easy it was morning around 7 just before sunrise then the attack began Hines caught a bullet and fell he died almost at once he didn't feel any pain yeah in pain or not it's all the same Hines was killed wasn't he [Music] this is my father I'm mrs. chakra I apologize the Commerce circle Dolan says mr. shocker this was a severe loss was he your only Son yeah and yet surely it is easier for you when you consider Freya son was buried where was my son buried lieutenant he was buried near the battlefield and surely with the traditional fried cross of a soldier's grave oh yes your son made the finest sacrified one can make that must come so Leo it doesn't that isn't at all how he looked at it my night was no hero general he didn't want to go to war and he never wanted to die only my boy had no choice huh isn't that's an exaggeration yes it is I insisted and I don't know what he died for do you know dinner huh what a shocking attitude she has tell me is this Shopko who's your social democrat I don't know but there is no heroes great for him and no pretty wooden cross either just a bullet in the gut all night he screamed it hurt so much and then he was hit with that grenade no is there enough left to bury I'm sorry dad I've got to go back to the front now I understand that son

major I can't I was scheduled now show me your papers of lieutenant now I think we can manage this mrs. Reiter orders from the train commander lieutenant you'll leave on the morning train scheduled to depart at 1917 for Karlsruhe this above my pack is on the train then go and get it how good to be here again it seems I've been away for years and here it's just as if times been standing still yeah the house it's so empty though now the father's gone away one forgets how much someone like father dominates things how is the old world he was happy when he was at the front but they've ordered him back to headquarters and if they don't let him go back to the front their claim that's why we lost a war what did you say I don't think one should joke about that all this would be useless yes you're right I'm sorry it's the first time we've talked since Paul was killed you know I'll never forget the beautiful letter you sent me Alex what could her words my heart always to tell I couldn't believe it was you coming toward me today I don't know what to do anymore where to everything's all turned around come on you're just a worry you always were him the fast I had to worry I have to begin worrying about a little brother and mother passed away like a factor well tell me about it don't get me started what a little karate no stay beside me as always home means you always you Elizabeth [Applause] however there is someone I'm really worried about poor Bridget Bridget Langston yes she's very nice she's very nice no more what else she's in love with you what's more she's a good match the family is extremely wealthy they signed up for 60,000 marks in the warlow I've got a girl in Flanders and Flanders a German gasps no no no mean she doesn't study medicine it's true she's a barmaid but her parents also supported the war effort they were shot in Lebanon as hostages Haddix who is she does it matter I loved her and fled to a small town on the border by now Linda can is very near the front on the other side look at those flags don't think we got that far near here too small to be on the map it's a region of big fields and canals and terribly sad and that's where fathering these young men did try to blow up a railroad bridge and despite their ages they certainly deserve punishment it was a rash act quite useless junk nusers yes but they could have caused great damage and they might have killed someone yes I know that's the point general avoid taking human life it's a lesson both of us appreciate and it's precisely why I asked you to suspend the death penalty for these young Belgians as a priest I know that you only allow ease I must tell you I'm not really a priest it's merely a name that some of the soldiers have given me as a sort of friendly joke I am dr. Simon a German name a biblical name yes but aren't you in the church no I am a medical doctor huh I thought no I wear a clergyman's color as a sort of disguise the swara makes cowards of us all dr. Simon the courts position is valid it is valid but is it just I think the Justice is that which serves the individuals of a society and helps them to lead happy productive lives and that we shoot each other it's conducive neither to productivity nor happiness you forget we are at war doctor but apparently not much longer it's rumored that general Ludendorff is about to retreat that is nonsense I reveal the matter if you like and do what I can dr. Simon kindly wait outside a very extraordinary man he came with recommendations from headquarters sir general do you think he was right about the retreat of general luteinizing concern our duties would be a tragedy for our country I don't understand why his Majesty is final in this situation why haven't we heard yes our commander-in-chief was talking to her lien though here short major good luck at the right time His Majesty will address us with the right words for us and then throughout land a great Teutonic war cry will be heard I am to inform you that the general regrets he cannot intervene in the matter sir I know but nothing nothing you suppose I can get a ride to Brussels I'm afraid not for a while if you'd care to wait however lieutenant hour ah a relative of the general yes your son I'm delighted the bank Schneider I'm passing through no sir on assigned here that's very good news in this way to tell Alexander where have you come from I just come in from Ross thought I was on leave Elizabeth sends on our best Oh Alex this is my son this is Garrett Roslin how do you do sir this has made you ruin our operations officer we must have medicine for a frontline soldier a big bottle of courage seems but is needed makes not a please see if you can find some the podium bad there was you I'll see to it general come on sit down come on now well are things like like at home all cold and lonely I suppose yes everyone's hungry the woman have to dig up roots of plants and the children help them mm-hmm have you allowed to go back to your comrades at the front yes except I'm transferred here yeah yes sir as your aide sir but how does it happen we knew nothing of this I was aware of a general what two weeks ago I got a letter from major Raiders Widow my daughter yes sir the major and I had been friends and hope Miao has a private friendship got to do with the lieutenant's transfer mrs.
