I've always thought how futile those WWI battles were, with soldiers blindly running across the fields to their deaths, and I guess it was inevitable that the best way to defeat the enemy was to attack from below. Deep below.
An incredible story of a relatively unknown group of normal everyday Aussie miners recruited as experts to dig below the battle fields towards enemy lines and blow the hell out of them. Based on the true story of the secret subterranean war at Hill 60 in Ypres Belgium, involving Capt. Oliver Woodward of the 1st Australian Tunneling Division who took over the job that eventually saw the biggest explosion in human history.
A fascinating story, beautifully shot with touching individual stories surrounding the main event and an insight into our unsung heroes. They where unsung for so long as these guys where not regular army but looked down upon as civilians who shouldn't have been there.
I wouldn't say it was as emotionally involved such as the film Gallipoli but the story is the winner here -- Official Site - Interview ROB
