Siegfried Sassoon - A War Poet's Journey is a companion historical documentary that accompanies Chapter 8:Trenches of Hell in The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones. It appears on Disc 1 of Volume 2. It has a run-time of 30 minutes, 9 seconds.
He was a soldier's soldier, decorated for bravery by the British government and respected by the men in his battalion. But war had taken its toll on Siegfried Sassoon, and he felt a deep resentment against his country's military campaign. Sassoon returned from the trenches of hell in World War I to fight another battle in the halls of government back home. His resentment took the form of poetry: searing indictments that ran counter to popular opinion. This is the story of how one man's poetry and his protest against World War I shined a light of truth on the subject of war forever framed that conflict in the memory of his country.
