Bury the Dead
When six dead soldiers stand up in their graves and refuse to be buried, the military are at a loss for what to do. The captains and generals attempt to persuade the men to lie down quietly but quickly discover it's difficult to negotiate with men who have nothing left to lose. If the greatest honour is to die for your country, how could you ever refuse?
