War Hero or Murderer

In 1917, Percy Toplis is alleged to have been involved in a mutiny among allied troops just ahead of the Battle of Passchendaele. Two years later, he is suspected of a series of robberies and the murder of a taxi driver on a quiet country road near Andover, Hampshire. The hunt for the fugitive ends when he is shot dead by police near Penrith, Cumbria and which then raised questions about the justification of his death.
