      This dramatic story is situated on the battlefield of World War I. Corporal
      Hoferik takes over the command of a small troop after the death of all
      officers. He forces the soldiers into an attack in spite of the uselessness
      and loss of lives. General Bergers comes to decorate Hoferik with the medal
      Signum Laudis which is normally given only to officers. When the soldiers
      discover that they are in a siege, Bergers sends the regiment directly
      against the enemy and he together with a small group of officers try to get
      through the siege. During this attempt Hoferik takes over the command,
      because the officers are unable to cope with the situation. After they
      manage to
      survive, the officers decide to get rid of fanatic Hoferik as the witness of
      their
      incompetence and cowardice. They organize a military tribunal on the field,
      sentence him and hang him.
