Summary
This thought-provoking series goes back to the battlefields of the First World War to transform our image and understanding of the conflict in terms of the people who fought and died in the Great War. It reminds us of those who even now are sidelined in history. Every major battle of World War One was fought by multi-racial allied armies; over a million non-white soldiers died in the conflict. They fell on the Western Front and in the battlefields of Asia, Africa and the Middle East. Yet from the moment the guns fell silent their part in the 'Great War for Civilisation' was marginalised and then forgotten. The war also starkly exposed the contradictions and hypocrisies that surrounded race in the early 20th century, with huge differences in the behaviour of the Allied nations towards non-white peoples, and war itself changed those attitudes yet further. The use of black troops by the allies became the focus of a furious German propaganda campaign, yet the Kaiser's army also employed thousands of black soldiers in the war in Africa. The exploits of black Africans and black Americans were celebrated by the French and Americans, and used in their own propaganda to shore up support for the war at home. A century later new historical research is bringing their extraordinary stories out of the historical shadows
