Shot at Dawn archiveDawn, grey cloudless sky, stillness, gun-shot breaks the silence...Soldiers return to the front line, a colleague is gone, the fighting goes on...

Based on fact and drawn from WW1 first-hand eyewitness letters, diaries and accounts, this powerful and heartfelt courtroom drama, tells the story of how these two heroes, shell shocked and shattered, were tried without a jury or any right of appeal.
