In 1932, Hitler and the Nazi Party were threatening to take control of Germany, and there was a growing fear of another war. In the summer of that year, John and Annie Williams make their annual trip to visit their son's grave in the Flanders region of Belgium. Their son, Herbert Edward Williams, had been killed while fighting at the battle of Passchendaele in 1917.
Erich and Martina Lehmann from Germany are also in Flanders to pay their respects to the memory of their son, Kurt, who died in the same campaign. During the visit, confrontational events take place. The story moves from the battlefields of the Western Front to the domestic life of the families over a period of two decades.
Having lost their sons in one conflict, both families fear that they may have to make further sacrifices.
This story does not seek to be pro-British or pro-German. As we travel along the journey of our lives, we will experience joy, pride, despair, love, grief, and the fear of loss. Two Sons is about the emotions, the passion, and the feelings that many of us share, regardless of nationality, class, faith, and status.
