A History of Men in Battle Presented by Frederick Forsyth Casualty
This inevitably hard-hitting programme illustrates the tragic face of battle. Death, wounds and capture are the price soldiers often have to pay when their countries send them to war. Once cobblers, tinkers and sowgelders were employed as military surgeons. The advancement of medicine and transport have improved the wounded soldier's chances of recovery.
Historically far more soldiers have died from their wounds and from disease than ever from gun powder.
But for centuries to be taken prisoner was the greatest hardship a soldier could undergo and in some cases this can still be so today. Written by RICHARD HOLMES Film cameraman IAN STONE Film editor TIM CAWSTON Director JOHN BIRD Producer JOHN GAU
