It is the summer of 1914. The Dobsons are getting ready to visit their country cousins, the Carters. Ten-year-old Archie Dobson is particularly excited to be seeing his older cousin Walter. Walter tells Archie of a great adventure he believes to be coming in the near future…and when war is declared, later that summer, Walter enlists in the army.
