[edit] Information

The Great Underground War: Series 1 A five-part series that explores the forgotten story of the incredible engineering feats and secret survival techniques of five legendary battles fought underground during World War I. This fascinating series unearths the story about how the Great War went on underground.

[edit] The Mines of Ypres

The story of how a unique British tunneling technique developed for the mud of Flanders was employed to win the strategic ground during the gruesome trench warfare of the Ypres Salient.

[edit] The Secret of the Somme

An exploration of newly discovered fortresses, dugouts, and bunkers tells the story of the innovative German engineering that made defenses resistant to massive bombardments.

[edit] Vauquois Hill of Death

For three years the Germans and French blew each other up with massive explosions, using a maze of underground galleries and tunnels. The whole story is told through the preserved diaries of Herman Hoppe, a German engineer who built many of the tunnels.

[edit] Col di Lana

The largest mine blown on the Italian front literally destroyed half the mountainside of this strategic point in the Dolomite mountains. We explore trenches and tunnels and interview descendants of the Austrians and Italians who fought under and above this treacherous terrain.

[edit] Monte Paterno

A personal account of the tragic battles that unfolded amid the sharp gullies and ravines of the Dolomites, requiring men to perform the nearly impossible: excavate and tunnel through solid granite in freezing weather
