Epigraph
We Shall Not Sleep:

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

--John McCrae
Dedication
At Some Disputed Barricade:

To my brother, Jonathan, army surgeon
First words
At Some Disputed Barricade:

The sun was sinking low over the waste of no-man's-land when Barshey Gee staggered up the trench, his arms flying, his boots clattering on the duckboards.
We Shall Not Sleep:

"Home for Christmas this year, Chaplain?" Barshey Gee said with a wry smile.
