Rated TBC by the BBFC


Part of the documentary series looking at the course of the First World War. This volume looks at the events of 1916, when the construction of vast trench networks had made it almost impossible for either side to gain the advantage. This was also the year dominated by two of the most destructive battles in history, with the French bogged down in the fortress of Verdun, and with the British committed to the horrific fighting on the Somme. Includes rare archive footage.
