The final batch of dramatic reconstructions based on the letters and journals of people whose lives were affected by the First World War. An Australian piano teacher tries to get home from behind enemy lines, an Italian-American leads a revolt in a mental institution, a German soldier is involved in a mutiny, and a schoolgirl attempts suicide. An experienced English journalist is sickened by the Allies' behaviour as the war comes to a close, a French boy witnesses the German retreat and a Cossack woman is caught up in the Russian Revolution.
