The First World War was one of the worst disasters to hit humanity. Upwards of ten million killed, with millions more wounded or gassed, it shook European civilisation to its core and created problems that are still unresolved today.

Set in France in March 1918, Last Train to Waverley tells one week in the life of one man, Lieutenant Douglas Ramsay, a young officer commanding a unit of the 20th Royal Scots.

Recently returned from hospital leave, Ramsay finds himself cut off from the rest of the British Army behind the German lines with only a handful of men. This is the story of how he led these men to safety and came to terms with his turbulent private life along the way.
