Description

“The story of Britain at her Imperial zenith”. During the long reign of Queen Victoria, Britain’s armies marched to the farthest reaches of the globe in order to win an empire for their queen and country. Africa was a vital source of trade and materials for the rapidly expanding industrial Britain and so the famous redcoat armies fought through the endless jungles, swamps and deserts of the vast continent. Through these harsh conditions, soldiers campaigned on expeditions from the Asanti and Zulu Wars to the Boer War. This DVD uses accurate feature film footage and original dramatised reconstructions and re-enactments to tell the story of Britain at the height of her imperial ambitions. This highly atmospheric programme also features state of the art computer mapping techniques and delightful surviving period imagery. Narrated by Brian Blessed. Featuring expert comment and analysis by Dr David Chandler, the world’s foremost military historian and former Head of War Studies at Sandhurst.
