I was so impressed by this 5 part series. We are brought up learning about WW1, but this also shows the emotional and personal side of WW1 from 2 young lads who are there. The 2 young actors are (imho) fantastic in the lead roles. At times it was just too much to watch, so enthusiastic about going to war and seeing a different country and then the horror of what they had signed up for. WAtching their friends dying at their side, cold, hungry, wet, and thinking it would only last for a few weeks/months at the most. PLus what the families back home were going through. Remember no social media back then, just a short letter once in a while, so totally no idea if they were dead or alive. Really glad I watched it. Would make a great learning series for schools I think.
