Ninety years after the last shots were fired, two young Australian historians embark on an emotional journey to the battlefields of World War I on the infamous Western Front. History teacher Michael Molkentin joins battlefield historian Mat McLachlan in an exploration of the Australian soldiers' wartime experience in Belgium. The two men visit iconic sites, following in the footsteps of Australian wartime photographer Frank Hurley. And they join an archaeological excavation of the trenches and fields where 20,000 Australians went missing, their bodies lost, their graves unmarked.
