       Additional Information  
      A dramatic, futuristic story about conflicting loyalties and the horrors of war. Sometime in a machine-less future, six soldiers, five volunteers and a professional, are on their way to fight for their country against the invading army of "the Vixen". Marching, lost, through the hills, they arrive at an apparently deserted farm, unaware that its last remaining inhabitant, a teenage girl, is hiding in an outhouse. Their discovery of her is to have a dramatic impact. For Mary becomes the soldiers' map, guiding them to the battlefield - or so the men are told by their leader, Sergeant Talbot. Flinty, dispassionate, he is a soldier who plays strictly by the rules and the men trust him as deeply as they are distrustful of Mary. In war, though, the truth is never so simple . This tense and haunting story, narrated alternately by Mary and the young volunteer Hobbs, moves to a dramatic and powerful conclusion.
