The Last Voices of World War I (2008): S01E06 – The Boys of 1918


Introduction

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

Outline

In the spring of 1918 the war still hung in the balance. But as the Germans launched their massive offensive in the spring, 18-year-old British conscripts were sent to France to make up the numbers. Thousands were taken prisoner as the German advance continued and suffered months of hardship at the hands of their captors. But by the summer the tide began to turn and the Boys of 1918 helped turn defeat in victory.
