Treachery and valour in World War II... As war is declared on Germany, Eddie Dawson, an explosives expert and somewhat reluctant Lance Corporal in the Royal Engineers, is sent to the Saarland region, where the French have launched an ill-advised invasion into German territory. Dawson's skills are needed to clear a minefield, but within hours everything has gone wrong and he and a fellow sapper are caught on the wrong side of the front line. They must fight their way out of the Warndt Forest, with a squad of SS troops hot on their trail determined to kill them both.

Salonika, 1916: a city that is nominally neutral, but is teeming with French, British, and Serbian armies. A city seething with intrigue, where the native inhabitants are eager to make what money they can from the foreign soldiery. Welcome to the Birdcage, named after the miles of tangled barbed wire separating the city from the fighting to the North. It is the Casablanca of WWI. This kaleidoscope of nations, cultures and political ambitions shifts and re-forms around a group of English men and women, blown there by many different winds - into a world of madcap journeys by mule, motor car, and foot over the grim mountains; of U-boats lurking in the waters; of the sinister Gazmend Effendi. What is his game? Where is all the petrol disappearing to? The breathless ride is just beginning...

But, as the tedium of his regiment's encampment without action provides ample time for self-reflection, disquieting thoughts begin to prey upon his mind: doubts as to whether, in combat, he will stand his ground valiantly - or flee ignominiously. Then the regiment receives orders to march, and Henry finds himself flung into the maelstrom of battle. Amidst the blood, the acrid smoke, and the unworldly wails of the dying, his courage will be put to the ultimate test...
