Reviews in German: «Love and jealousy influence one man to effect a friend’s disgrace as a coward. This is done by forging an order to retreat. The bursting of a shell kills the girl’s brother, a drummer boy, but before he dies he picks up the forged dispatch and puts it in the pocket of his coat. Twenty years later, the girl, still unmarried, fetches this coat to wave out the window as the veterans march by. The dispatch is found, and the past is made clear. The disgraced captain is surprised to hear his old comrades calling for him to march at their head. The picture closes with Jack and Bess decorating the grave of Dave, as the grizzled veterans are grouped in the background.» – The Moving Picture World, [?] May 1911, p.1260, zitiert nach Giornate del Cinema muto, Pordenone 2006
