A group of boys, evacuated during World War II from London to a coastal town, form a gang and play war games. Too young to fight in the war and afraid it will be over by the time they come of age, the group members, who are in the school's Army Cadet Force initiate a battle with the local teenagers. Curlew, a local youth, invites an Austrian Jewish refugee with whom he has formed a close relationship to take part in the shenanigans. At first the Jewish boy, Stein, is scorned because of his "Germanic" heritage but is allowed to join; when Stein runs off during a fight, the youths decide to give him a fake court-martial and execution, but real bullets are used by a freak mistake and Stein is killed.

Genteq is a division of Regal-Beloit Corporation, one of the largest manufacturers of electric motors in the world. Genteq is the rebranding of Regal’s GE ECM, GE Capacitors and GE Commercial Motors divisions, which occurred in 2009. Genteq develops and manufactures electronically commutated motors and capacitors for residential and light commercial heating and air conditioning systems; the company is based in Fort Wayne, with manufacturing facilities in Mexico. Genteq is the developer of BLAC motor technology, the DEC Star blower. DEC Star blower technology has been developed into the DEC Star Fan Panel System, a development made by IBEC: Innovative Building Energy Controls, a Kansas corporation headed by Dave Ogle, Kansas Master Mechanical and the developer of the Net Positive RTU using the DECStar technology. DEC Star Fan Panels are both a retro-fit, new manufacturing application for large energy reductions in commercial HVAC applications. DEC Star blower technology is a key component to the Power Scout program, a comprehensive approach to building/facility wide energy and demand reductions.

Genteq markets its products to original equipment manufacturers, as well as to HVAC contractors and technicians. Regal acquired General Electric’s Commercial and HVACR Motors and Capacitors businesses in 2004; these acquisitions from General Electric doubled Regal’s size. As part of that acquisition, Regal acquired the rights to use the GE brand through 2009. Nearing the end of that licensing period, Regal rebranded these divisions as Genteq in February 2009. General Electric developed an Electronically Commutated Motor, or ECM, technology for use in residential and light commercial heating and air conditioning systems in North America in the mid-1980s; the GE ECM motor was the first ultra-high efficiency motor for home heating and air conditioning systems, providing greater home comfort and energy efficiency. The DEC Star blower was added to the Genteq product line in 2014; the DEC Star Fan Panel system began development in 2015, is available now, in 2016 through the IBEC corporation.
