DISC ONE - GALLIPOLI 1915
The story of the ill-fated Allied campaign in the Dardanelles that was supposed to knock Turkey out of World War One. It was the brain-child of Winston Churchill, who convinced Allied High Command that an attack at Gallipoli would also open up vital supply lines to Russia and establish a third front against Austria-Hungary. Gallipoli has become a by-word for the bravery and sacrifice of the ANZACS - the Australian and New Zealand troops who fought and died during the ten month campaign that saw an estimated 36,000 Commonwealth troops lose their lives before the ignominious Allied withdrawal in January 1916. It was not only Turkish shot and shell at infamous places such as Anzac Cove and Suvla Bay that claimed so many lives, but also those other traditional hidden enemies of the soldier - sickness and disease. 'Line Of Fire' harnesses state-of-the-art computer technology to explore and explain the factors which have shaped years of human conflict. This is history with a difference: for the first time we are able to see the great battlefields of the world in a unique 'virtual' environment, providing new insights into military history's most compelling events. Each powerful episode combines unrivalled graphics with atmospheric recreations to analyse and explore every facet of famous battles.
DISC TWO - THE SOMME 1916
July 1st 1916 was the blackest day in the history of the British Army when a combination of bad planning and German bullets sent Kitchener's Army to their doom. An army that had taken two years to make took only a day to destroy. Taken from the hugely-popular television series 'Line Of Fire', this programme harnesses state-of-the-art computer technology to explore, explain and bring new perspectives to the battle which symbolises the suffering of the Great War. Featuring archive footage and specially treated recreations, 'The Somme' also includes authoritative comment and analysis by leading military historians from the Royal Military Academy at Sandhurst.
DISC THREE - CAMBRAI 1917
At Cambrai in November 1917, a tank force of over three hundred tanks punched a hole four miles deep into the German lines in the space of a single morning, an advance comparable in size to that made at Passchendale in four months. But the Germans counter-attacked and the result of the battle was a virtual draw, with the front lines shifting slightly. However the battle of Cambrai marked a major turning point in the course of the war - and military history as a whole. The era of trench warfare was coming to an end and technology was beginning to reign supreme on the battlefields of Europe.
