Join curator Justin Saddington to discover the stories of the individuals who founded the British Special Forces.
A century ago the Women's Army Auxiliary Corps was formed to free up soldiers to fight on the front line. This laid the foundations for female service in the British Army and provoked a debate that continues to this day.
During the Second World War women took on increasingly diverse roles. But, like their First World War predecessors, they were still prevented from fighting.
In 2016 women were finally allowed to undertake combat roles with the British Army. But even before that, many female soldiers had been serving on the front line and in war zones around the world.
Discover the national and global impact of the First World War and hear the stories of men and women whose lives were affected by the conflict.
Captain William Leith-Ross was a member of Dunsterforce, a prototype special operations unit assembled in January 1918 for a secret mission to the Caucasus.
The German Spring Offensive saw mobile warfare return to the Western Front. Despite early gains, the Germans exhausted themselves, setting the stage for a successful Allied counter-offensive.
