This comedy drama is the true story of two Army dentists Sergeant Peter King (Kenneth Cranham) and Private Leslie Cuthbertson (Leo Bill) who, in 1942, stole a bag of hand grenades, two revolvers and a set of the best dental equipment that money could buy and went off to invade occupied France on their own - without permission! 'Two Men Went to War' tells their outrageously irresponsible, yet eccentrically heroic story for the first time with an all-star cast in a sumptuous, funny and moving dramatisation of one of the most bizarre events to have occurred in the Second World War.
