The Last Voices of World War I (2008): S01E04 – Horror in the Mud


Introduction

A fitting and deeply moving tribute to the experience and service of those who fought in World War 1.

Outline

The story of 1917 and the terrible battles at Arras and Passchendaele. After surviving the freezing winter of 1916, the British attacked the Germans at Arras – the battle that followed saw the highest daily casualty rate of the war. There was also a dramatic battle in the skies as British airmen fought Germany’s Red Baron for air supremacy. In the summer, the British advanced towards the village of Passchendaele in the most dreadful conditions. Countless numbers drowned in the mud in the battle that remains synonymous with the horror of mechanised warfare.
