From 1914-18 the first World War raged. Brutal and bloody, many millions fought and died before Germany surrendered. Drawing on the first-hand testimonies, interviews, letters and audio recordings of the soldiers themselves, three-part scripted drama series Our World War (Monday 15th to Wednesday 17th. 9.40pm) reveals with eye-witness immediacy their often hidden and disturbing front-line experiences throughout the duration of the war.
From the riflemen and machine gunners of the 4th Battalion The Royal Fusiliers, to the young volunteers fighting alongside workmates and friends in a pals regiment, and a tank commander and crew fighting their way across enemy territory, Our World War captures the terrible reality of combat, bringing the conflict to vivid life and capturing history as seen through the soldiers’ eyes.
