Now all roads lead to France and heavy is the tread
Of the living; but the dead returning lightly dance.

Episode 4 of BBC's Great War Series

Our Hats We Doff to General Joffre

  1. The writing can be so elegant and Redgrave's narration so brilliant. The way this episode ends is wonderful and a total cliffhanger.

    "The pendulum was coming briefly to rest. For an indefinable moment of time the soldiers paused their movement. Under the gilding leaves of early Autumn 'round their campfires the men of the warring nations drew a little breath. The moment of decision was at hand."
