A moving tribute to the teenage heroes of the Great War. With as many as 250,000 boys under the age of 18 having served in the British Army during World War One. Was it motivated by patriotism, or the spirit of adventure?
Fergal Keane unearths the powerful stories of Britain’s boy soldiers, looking at what compelled them to enlist, no matter the consequences. He also meets their children and grandchildren, taking them on an emotional journey to the places their ancestors trained and fought.
Did Teenage Tommies give us sufficient pause to think about the events of a 100 years ago? My partner wept from minute one to minute 60. Mission accomplished.Joseph Charlton, The Independent
