The War That Changed The World

Five programmes

Continuing the series we heard earlier in the year, the BBC visits a further five countries to discuss WWI issues

(2) France: Heroism and Sacrifice

"The first virtue in a soldier is endurance of fatigue; courage is only the second virtue" said Napoleon. Life in the trenches during the war, amongst rats, mud, shelling, barbed wire and unprecedented numbers of dead, called upon new reserves of both. But what did the war do to the ancient idea of heroism? With death, degradation and grief on such an unprecedented scale how did the concepts of duty, sacrifice and honour survive? At Napoleon's last resting place, the Hôtel National des Invalides, on the centenary of the outbreak of the first industrialised war, Amanda Vickery, her guests and audience explore heroism and World War One (BBC)
