The setting is 1943 UK. Major General Clive Wynne-Candy, a forty-year-old military officer, is regarded by some of his younger eager officers as an old, soft, chubby man with a ridiculous mustache who has outdated notions of what's needed to win the war. But they have no idea of his background and military history that shaped his point of view and the man he is today, nor why he wears a mustache. This story includes a diplomatic dispute in Berlin over the German view of the British military in the Boer War, his time at the front in France during the First World War and what he thought was the reason for the end of this war and that he had to reinvent himself in the war During the Second World War. He is also influenced by his friendship with four people, one of whom is Theo Kretschmar-Schuldorff, a German officer with whom he had an unfortunate founding meeting in 1902. The other three are the important women of his life: English schoolteacher Edith Hunter, The Sister of the Red Cross, Barbara Wynne, and Angela "Johnny" Cannon, his personal driver in World War II.
