WHERE POPPIES BLOW: THE BRITISH SOLDIER, NATURE, THE GREAT WAR

Synopsis

During the Great War, soldiers lived inside the ground, closer to nature than many humans had lived for centuries. Animals provided comfort and interest to fill the blank hours in the trenches. But above all, nature healed, and, despite the bullets and blood, it inspired men to endure. This is the unique story of how nature gave the British soldiers of the Great War a reason to fight, and the will to go on.
