Summary Original archives from the Western Front are used to uncover the stories of seven of the men whose remarkable bravery in 1916 won them the Victoria Cross, Britain's most prized military medal. Interviews with modern-day family members reveal the personal stories of each character, exploring the differing fortunes they experienced and the variety of reasons for which they fought. One man made war an adventure. For another, adventure turned into sacrifice. One's bravery was remembered for a century. Another's forgotten within a decade. One soldier fought because it was his heritage. Another because it was his duty. This program reveals how they all risked everything, all won the Victoria Cross, and all were heroes of the Somme.
