Summary
It's 1916 and British Captain Fred Roberts and his detachment of Sherwood Foresters discover an abandoned printing press in the ruins of Ypres, Belgium. Roberts has an idea: he will produce a newspaper to raise the spirits of his soldiers, taking their minds off 'the attentions of Messrs Hun and Co.' They call it The Wipers Times, after the army slang for Ypres, and fill it with spoofs, jokes, and subversive comedy. A hit with the troops on the Western Front, it also incurs the wrath of top brass who want it banned
