Russell Stonechild goes through basic infantry training in Scotland and earns his Scout badge. He is among the first of the BEF to reach France to defend against Hitler. Failure of the British and French forces to be proactive forces Russell and part of his battalion to use their own initiative against a secret Nazi installation.
In the first novel in the Stonechild Chronicles, Russell Stonechild, a young Cree from Northern Saskatchewan, joins the Gall Light Armoured, a private Scots battalion. He receives special training from a Ghurka Master Sergeant and earns his Scout badge. He is also key in rescuing Fletcher McAlpin, son to the Earl of Gall, from Nazi kidnappers.
In this second novel the Gall Light Armoured become the first contingent of the British Expeditionary Force to reach France following Hitler's invasion of Poland. Russell gains intelligence identifying a secret German base on the border between Germany and Alsace, France.
Both the French and British Forces remain dormant during a period known as the phoney war. A refusal to act on the part of military leadership, leads the colonel of the Gall Light Armoured to unilaterally commit to action against the secret German base.
