John Kipling lies mortally wounded in the trenches of France.  The war is raging all around him.  And now he is dying in his first battle.  As he waits for death, he thinks back to his childhood.  He is the son of the famous author Rudyard Kipling.  And his father truly believed in duty to country.  As a matter of fact, Rudyard had to pull strings to get John into the military.  We learn about John's life and beliefs about honor and duty.
