January 1944, the south coast of England. The Fifth Battalion, Wessex Regiment wait patiently and nervously for the order to embark. There is boredom and fear, comedy and pathos as the men - all drawn from different walks of life - await the order to move.
From The City, From The Plough is a vivid and moving account of the fate of these men as they set off for Normandy and advance into France.
