Railways of the Great War With Michael Portillo DVD



Former politician Michael Portillo presents this five-part BBC documentary series exploring the role railways played in the First World War.

While the bulk of the war may have been fought in the trenches of France, with the invention of the machine gun key to the long and deadly stalemate, Portillo argues that the railways also played a critical role in the war.

Visiting locations in Britain, Belgium, Luxembourg and France, he discusses the importance of the railways in moving men, guns and machinery to the frontlines and evaluates their contribution to the Allied victory.
