The Great War - January 25, 2016
Definitive film account of the world-shattering events of 1914-1918, originally broadcast in 1964. This episode explores the attempts to rally the French Army for a great spring offensive. Robert Nivelle, the commander-in-chief, promised breakthrough in no more than 48 hours and total victory to follow. But the Germans knew of his plans and turned the packed trenches into slaughterhouses. Now sick of promises, and of death, the once-proud French Army began to openly mutiny - they had finally had enough.
