In 19th century Europe, it was not uncommon in times of war for young aristocrats to hire peasant boys to fight in their place. Such a surrogate is portrayed by Cris Campion in the French Field of Honor (Champ d'Honneur). The conflict at hand is the Franco-Prussian war, which was virtually fought in the backyards of its combatants. Finding himself behind enemy lines, Campion befriends a Prussian soldier who, like himself, is a substitute. Together, Campion and his new comrade try to elude capture, learning a great deal about each other along the way. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
