In 1920, country girl Mathilde is living in Brittany with her aunt and uncle when she learns that her fiancé Manech was one of five French soldiers condemned to a barbarous death by their own side.

Hiring a dogged old bird of a private detective and a lawyer to aid her, Mathilde is off on an adventure. She pursues her sleuthing through a flurry of letters, documents, and private interviews--hunting down the soldiers who were in the trenches with Manech--along with their lovers and relatives.
