Jan Kubitzky was stuck at 14 years old. His home in Poland was destroyed. The Russians left and were replaced by Germans. The soldiers took him and his neighbor's dog along as good luck. Jan gets more and more involved with the soldiers. His actions, which started out as friendly gestures, turn into acts of war against the enemy. When Jan recognizes he's going to be rewarded for his part in the war, he gets confused. He had no idea why he should be killing some strangers and not others. Read about Jan's escapades during World War I.
