During the reign of the Great British Empire, when officers and soldiers of different ranks and positions fought for new lands, their children passed their military school, but only within the walls of the college. The author describes in brief stories, the main characters of which consistently are Stalki, Makturk and Zhuk, unreasoned events from their own lives. Stalki - the leader of the company, rallied, when the heroes reached the age of 13 years. He is bold, daring, his character shines with the most vivid and positive qualities inherent in the future defender of the country. Maktuk is not inferior in charisma to his fighting comrade. He's bold and stubborn. Beetle is a kid in glasses, showing a talent for writing poetry. Boys for many years on their own skin experienced beatings and humiliation of high school students, they suffered plunder. Now their time has come, but not in order to humiliate and offend the younger, but to pay tribute to the offenders and those who intend to set foot on the path of the school war. They come up with cunningly wise mischief for harmful teachers, make fun of badasses and conceit from parallel classes.
