Description

The Somme is usually seen as the darkest hour of the British Army. Almost 20,000 British soldiers died on the first day of battle alone, and a further 37,000 were wounded. British commanders were vilified and the Somme became synonymous with military incompetence. But there was more to the Somme than just senseless slaughter - because it was on those blood-soaked fields that the British Army learned how to defeat its German enemy...

For the very first time this major BBC production - commissioned to mark the 90th anniversary of the Somme - reveals what it was really like to be an ordinary British soldier going 'over the top' in 1916 and how British tactics changed to turn a terrible defeat into ultimate victory., The Somme is usually seen as the darkest hour of the British Army.
