In The Civilians' Story, viewers see harrowing images of the many French towns that were razed, their churches and civic buildings destroyed to leave a desolate, almost lunar landscape. The programme witnesses some of the individual acts of quiet heroism by the nurses and doctors who tended the wounded, and sees the relief and sheer joy of the Armistice Day celebrations. The Civilians' Story is a moving account of a people and a nation which, arguably, suffered more than any other during the Great War.
