Summary
Alexander Moore is an upper-class Irish boy. All but ignored by his father and devoured by his mother, he is alone, lonely and bored. On his family's majestic and glorious farm, there is a young peasant boy, Jerry Crowe, equally alone in the world. The friendship is born. It deepens, in spite of class difference, amid the beauties and freedom of the Irish countryside. And then World War I breaks out. The boys enlist; Alex is to become an officer, Jerry an enlisted man. Ultimately, in a dramatic and tragic scene at the front at Flanders, the fate of the two becomes locked together.--
