The story of the British Army in the 20th Century is one of weapons and battles, glorious victory and embarrassing defeat, and ever-improving technology - but above all it is the story of the soldier. Employing the massive technological improvemnet of the last 100 years, the soldier's importance on the battlefield has not diminished whatever the situation demands - advancing from mud-filled trenches on the Somme battlefield, racing across the North African desert, droppong by parachute into Normandy, fighting through the jungles of Burma or peacekeeping in far flung parts of the world.
Century of Army tells the full story from the era of sabre and lance in the Boer War to the advanced computer technology of today. The role of the tank, the importance of artillery, helicopters, battlefield training and the new era of joint co-operation are all featured. Rare and unseen film combines with newly shot footage and expert commentary to examine these 100 momentous years and tell the stories of the British great campaigns and battles. Features rare footage from the Boer War, the Somme, Dunkirk, El Alamein, Kohima, Normandy, Suez, Malaya, the Falklands, the Gulf War, Bosnia, and more...
