At the Gates of Gaza

“This is my War. My War for Civilization. My War for Freedom. My Life. My Race. My Place. My Honour. My Home.” 

Stranded in the battlefields of the Holy Land during the Great War, a battalion of West Indian volunteers fight for the Empire, the King and the Motherland. Their long search for identity and honour falls apart as the fragile hopes of young lives, both black and white, explode and shatter as betrayal and race take their toll. At the Gates of Gaza is a highly charged, emotional and gripping look at a world in the midst of change.
