A captivating and poignant tale, this is the little-known story of a group of Scottish athletes and their fans who went to war together—and what happened to the few who made it home. The saga of McCrae's Battalion brings much-needed human scale to World War I and explains why a group of young men from a small country with almost no direct connection to the conflict would end up sacrificing their careers, their homes, their health, and in many cases their lives to an abstract cause.
