The First World War was a war in which airplanes and mounted cavalry fought to defend the same front. It was a war that saw mud-filled, rat-infested trenches stretch in a more-or-less solid line from Switzerland to the English Channel. It came to be known as the War to End All Wars, and, ever since it ended on November 11th 1918, we have called that day Remembrance Day to honour the soldiers who took part, many thousands of whom made the ultimate sacrifice.

This DVD contains materials to help make the observation of Remembrance Day a rich and meaningful experience.
