Loved this. The narrative performed along side real live drama brought the story of the war home. The mixture of fighting in the trenches, along with the struggles at home during the war. Highly recommended

A very acted and slightly different view of the war. Instead of focusing purely on British soldiers this has a perspective of Indian troops which makes it refreshing and is very well acted out!
