The Story of the Army

The Story of the Army

The story of the British Army in the 20th century is one of weapons and battles, glorious victory and embarrassing defeat, and of ever improving technology; but above all it is the story of the soldier.
Employing the massive technology improvements of the last 100 years, the soldier's importance on the battelfield has not diminished, whatever the situation demands.
In this fascinating look at their lives we see them advancing from mud-filled trenches on the Somme battlefield, racing across the North African desert, dropping by parachute into Normandy, fighting through the jungles of Burma, and peace-keeping in far flung places of the world.
The Story of the Army tells the full story of the era of sabre and lance in the Boer War to the advanced computer technology of today.
