Fragments of War: Above

When George turns eighteen, he does not hesitate to take up his lifelong dream of flying. But in the unforgiving skies of the First World War it may not be all he’d hoped for.

About Fragments of War

Fragments of War explores three of the many perspectives of the first world war. It was a war that affected the lives of so many and in so many different ways that should not be overlooked or forgotten. Within this three-part series we explore stories set ‘Above’, in the treacherous skies, ‘Beneath’, in the dark and lonely tunnels under the trenches, and ‘Behind’, in the homes of the families waiting with little contact with or information about those they love.

Fragments of War is an independent project raising funding and awareness for the Royal British Legion. The Royal British Legion provides lifelong support for the Armed Forces community — serving men, women, veterans and their families. To donate, please visit their website.
