Summary:
This 2-DVD set includes: All the King's Men: It is one of the most compelling and curious legends of the First World War. Led by Captain Frank Beck (Sir David Jason), a favorite agent of King George V, Sandringham Company was comprised entirely of servants, grooms and gardeners from the King's Norfolk Estate. On August 12, 1915, the unit marched into battle and simply vanished. Queen Alexandra, played by Dame Maggie Smith (Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, A Room with a View), was the driving force behind the investigation into the fate of the battalion, but despite her extensive inquires, no trace of the men was ever discovered. Now, All the King's Men brings the details of what really happened in 1915 to the screen for the first time, and the true story of England's vanished regiment is revealed. The Killing Fields: In August 1914, the people of Europe were swept into the first of the wars that would make this century the bloodiest ever. Seventy million soldiers from more than twenty countries marched off enthusiastically to do their duty. In Killing Fields, soldiers from all sides remember the trenches and the tactics-and the terrible nature and scale of the slaughter that shattered the old world order.
