'The Unknown Soldier and His Wife'
by Sir Peter Ustinov
The Unknown Soldier goes off to die in 2,000 years' worth of battles, before finally deciding not to go to war again. We meet not only the Soldier and His Wife, but also the General who keeps ordering him to go to war and the Priest who attempts to justify it.
