The Great Underground War Documentary Series Overview (2014)


This fascinating series unearths the story about how the Great War went on underground.


In this unique take on WW1, British archaeologists meet up with German, Austrian and French experts, who together explore actual tunnels – from the Italian Alps to the plains of Belgium. We will be featuring expert reconstructions, unique aerial drone footage of the fronts, and never-before seen images of tunnels and bunkers. Five tales of tunnellers and miners who dug under the enemy when there was no other choice but to attack from beneath. Five legendary battles. Five tales of human sacrifice and tenacity. Five bloody battles that involved men from all over the world.
