    Mesopotamia, 1916. The Turks order prisoners from the siege of Kut to march the hundreds of miles to Baghdad. The men are weak from starvation after the five-month siege, with many suffering from dysentery, scabies, and malaria. They have no medical supplies. And then the hot weather begins.... Hundreds of men die on the march, the stragglers killed by Arab tribesmen; those too ill to move are left behind to die.
