 With trumpeting bugles and the valiant cries of men, armies clashed within the Napoleonic Era. Amid the shocking battlefields and the dark alleyways of Europe's capitals, heroes were called upon to make terrible sacrifices. These are their stories.

 Battling snow and ice, Marshal Michel Ney questions humanity and helplessly watches his soldiers' deaths in "The Bravest of the Brave."

 A lowly student struggles to save his imprisoned father amid Egypt's sands in "A Father Loved, a Glory Stolen."

 "Dulce et Decorum" sees a mother offer up her son to Napoleon's armies and the terrible consequences that sacrifice allows.

 Battles become commonplace in history. Instead, it is the personal narrative that inspires and provokes. The five stories in "Staying the Course" will challenge your views on war, human nature, sacrifice.
