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

Episode 6 of BBC's Great War Series

 So Sleep Easy In Your Beds


  1. I think this is one of my favorite episodes. It's so unlike any of the others in the series. The first time watching the series I was actually surprised they didn't have another Navy dominant episode, but this was it.

  2. One would think Jutland would have rated at least a mention.

    1. It does get mentioned in episode 14 of the series. It just doesn't have the airtime that one would think. The CBS series from 1964 had more on the battle than the BBC one did.
