The Setting

Subterranean Sepoys Poster

    It’s Winter 1914. It’s cold and wet.
    Fighting above ground is suicide.
    The only defence is to dig trenches.
    It’s a race to dig a tunnel towards the enemy to blow them up from underneath.
    The mining and bombing operations were carried out by sappers (engineers).
    But the Germans are better equipped and are getting closer by the hour.
