When We Go To War is a historical saga, that tells the story of six young men and women, who, in 1914 on the eve of World War I, are planning for the future.
Raised in the early years of a brave new century, they are a generation feeling that almost anything is possible. But their lives are changed forever as New Zealand enters the Great War.
Beginning a few weeks before the outbreak of war in August 1914, this epic mini-series follows the landing at Gallipoli in April 1915, the disastrous assault on Chunik Bair and eventual evacuation of Gallipoli in December 1915-through the eyes of New Zealand soldiers, officers, medical staff and family back home!
New Zealand has one of the highest living standards in the world, is part of the mighty British Empire –but few could foresee the horrors soon to come.
When We Go To War will be available from June 8.
