Kiwis At War 1914 Riding into War
Young Billy Bowman and his mate Jack get caught up in the excitement when war is declared in August 1914 and leave their jobs on the farm to rush off and enlist in the Mounted Rifles - because the war would 'probably be over by Christmas'.

And there they discover that war isn't the big adventure they thought it would be.
