A powerful first-person testimony to one of the most fascinating and traumatic episodes in human history, The Last Voices of the Great War, presents the remarkable stories of the last remaining veterans of World War I. Their recollections provide a unique insight into the extraordinary events of the conflict, from the brutality of trench warfare to their own personal experiences, the stories of the forgotten generation are revealed in depth. We see and hear dramatic stories from soldiers, airmen, POWs, the wounded, nurses, munitions workers, sweethearts and children. Their experience provides a unique insight into the extraordinary twists and turns of the war as the euphoria of 1914 turned into a grim struggle for survival by 1918. The series also features the first ever interview with Harry Patch, who died aged 111, the last survivor of trench warfare on the Western Front. From acclaimed multi-award winning filmmaker Steve Humphries and historian Richard van Emden, this six-part series is a fitting and deeply moving tribute to the heroism, loss and tragedy of the men and women who lived through one of the most telling chapters in history.
