Where is the Western Front? Why did two vast armies dig in, extending lines of trenches from the Channel ports almost to the Alps? All of this happened in the first weeks of the war so that by mid-September the German attack had faltered on the Marne and the situation became stalemated. This is the battlefield that the Anzacs, withdrawn from Gallipoli, entered at the beginning of 1916.

The German's launched the massive Operation Michael on an 80 kilometre front on March 21st 1918, the greatest offensive of the war. We hear stories of desperate defence and the crumbling of the Allied line, we meet great characters like New Zealand's most famous soldier Richard Travis, the unorthodox "king of no-man's land". And we reach what is, for many, the defining moment in Australia's war.

One of the most notorious killing fields of WWI - Passchendaele. We walk where the battalions fought and where the artillery sank in liquid mud. In the midst of the battle one of Australia's greatest soldiers, then Lieutenant Colonel Leslie Morshead, wrote 'things are bloody, very bloody'. The losses were enormous - on October 12th the New Zealand Division lost 2800 men, the bloodiest day in that country's military history.
