The Last Platoon

Return to Now Playing

By 2003, there were just 27 British survivors of The Great War still alive. Today, they are all gone.  This 2005 two-part BBC series interviewed many of the last surviving British veterans of the First World War. With some emotive reconstructed footage, and much outstanding archive materials, the films enabled those old gentlemen to express for the final time their memories of The Great War -- the War to End All Wars.
