In the autumn of 1918, invalided out of the front line, an officer is ordered to company headquarters. On his journey he stumbles into Miraucourt, a village that seems to have slipped outside history: somewhere, beyond the darkening bosom of those hills, there was a war, but it seemed incredibly remote, the wildest rumour of violence and sudden death. There are a strange group of English soldiers stationed in Miraucourt, could they be Shakespeare s Falstaff and Pistol, Bardolph and Nym In this unsettling story a soldier comes to terms with the War like a man sharing a house, year after year, with a lunatic. The Town Major of Miraucourt is Priestley s only fictional account of his experiences of WW1, years that were central to his life and writing, capturing the voice of the common soldier.
