In England before the outbreak of the First World War, two men court the same woman Violet Deering. She becomes engaged to Dick Chappel, but once he has gone off to the war commits herself to the other Roddy Dunton. On the Western Front Dunton joins Chappel with the British Army in the trenches. He persuades Chappel to take part in a reckless attack on the German lines, hoping he will be killed. Instead the brave Chappel is badly wounded. Later, full of remorse, Dunton commits suicide.
