The last days of WWI with Micheal Palin looks at those KIA on Amistice day.
It's also on the BBC's iplayer.
An interesting programme. I hadn't realised that so many people had died on that last day.
I felt sorry for the German officer,shot while going to the allied lines to announce the war was over,But what about the French?! Re-dating the death's of their men who died on 11/11 to 10/11 for some unknown reason.
And I'll admit my living room was dusty watching that.
Feel sorry for the Yanks that got thoroughly seen off by their higher ups. Is this story of some numpty ordering the taking of a town on the last day just for the bathing facilities pucker gen?
