War of Words: Soldier-Poets of the Somme
The documentary features vignettes on poets who fought in the Battle of the Somme: Siegfried Sassoon, Robert Graves, David Jones, Isaac Rosenberg and J.R.R. Tolkien. Tolkien's vignette, with commentary from John Garth, recounts his involvement in the battles around Thiepval Wood. It also highlights the influences the war had on the Fall of Gondolin, the Dead Marshes, and the eternal conflict of good versus evil.
