How Many Miles to Babylon?

How Many Miles to Babylon?

  • 27 April — 24 May 2014

Alec and Jerry shouldn't have been friends: Alec's life was one of privilege, while Jerry's was one of toil. But when war breaks out in 1914, both Jerry and Alec sign up - yet for quite different reasons. On the fields of Flanders they find themselves standing together, but once again divided: as officer and enlisted man.

And it is there, surrounded by mud and chaos and death, that one of them makes a fateful decision whose consequences will test their friendship and loyalty to breaking point.
