A documentary special marking the centenary of the Battle of the Somme and the men who fought in one of the bloodiest battles of World War I.

The real story of the Somme is about the men who fought it – the ordinary British men who joined up, left for France on a wave of patriotic fervor, but who eventually walked into war on the western front with all of its brutal realities. They came from all parts and from all backgrounds. Some had never before left their towns or villages, but the offer of a shilling a day, the prospect of an adventure in a foreign land and the chance to fight together for King and Country took all of them away.
