It is the early 1800s and French military genius Napoleon Bonaparte is ravaging the nations of Europe, conquering them one-by-one. He moves his forces into Poland but encounters fierce resistance headed by a crafty Polish general. In the meantime, the people of the land suffer untold miseries as war destroys cities, villages and countryside. The widespread destruction of war and the human suffering that follows is a central theme.
