This is a story of a great man who has turned into a blind weapon in the hands of a petty intrigue, a big warrior who has lost a war to small passions. The action takes place in the military environment, where valor often goes side by side with vulgarity and ignorance, where love neighbors lust, where it is much easier to be a hero in the face of deathon the battlefield than in the dead air of the dull barracks.And the key actor on the stage is the simple soldier, whose attitude to the situation is the mainspring of the story and the true cause of the tragedy. Thus a people who has given birth to an idea in a hard but fair fight can easily choke it in the mud of an idle talk.
