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

Episode 14 of BBC's Great War Series

All this it is our duty to bear

  1. Nice summary episode - though I think they probably were a bit too negative toward the Royal Navy's Jutland performance.

    I loved the way the episode wrapped it.

    "The bitterest winter in living memory gripped Europe. For ordinary people it was a time of hunger and cold...anxiety and sadness. But they knew their duty. They believed their cause was right. In France and Britain and Germany there was a grim resolve to fight on."

    That's some fantastic writing.
