Go into the trenches for an unflinching look at the most brutal aspect of war.
They are the bread and butter of every military force. Wars cannot be won without soldiers on the ground.
WEAPONS AT WAR goes into the trenches for an unflinching look at this least glamorous and most important aspect of warfare. From the weapons they use to the stories of the survivors, INFANTRY is an all-encompassing portrait of the unheralded soldiers who do the dirty work. One of the few remaining survivors tells what it was like to fight in the infamous trenches of World War I, while a World War II Medal of Honor recipient shares his memories of the Normandy landing. Military experts document the evolution of infantry tactics, and visits to world-famous weapons collections provide an up-close look at the famous and fabled weapons that soldiers have wielded in battles throughout the course of the century.
INFANTRY takes aim at the stories of the soldiers who fight face-to-face and toe-to-toe with the enemy.
