DVD Review – Walking the Western Front, Somme Part 3, Tank Battles and the Final Phase, September-November 1916


The growing list of Pen & Sword DVDs has been made up with lists from leading production companies. An important part of the list has been provided in the form of German WWII field cameramen shot footage used for propaganda and weekly domestic cinema news. Equally important but very different has been a selection of fine documentary-style videos and this video is from the Battleground series with Ed Skeling and Nigel Cave presenting the story of the Somme campaign of September to November 1916. This is an absorbing presentation that does not attempt to inject false excitement, depending on the excitement of real events ably told.
