14 June 1917
Drama tracing one real day in the Great War. After the victory at Messines, are the Allies ready for the challenge of Ypres? From September 2017.
By Jonathan Ruffle.
After the victory at Messines, Belgium are we prepared for the much bigger challenge of Ypres? A tale of sibling and professional rivalry and the cold logistics of organising and servicing the war effort.
Meticulously based on unit war diaries and eye-witness accounts, each episode of TOMMIES traces one real day at war, exactly 100 years ago.
