Coward: the reality of life on the front lines in World War One

306 British soldiers were executed for the offences of disobedience and desertion. Many were later believed to be suffering from shell-shock. In 2006, 88 years after the end of the war, the British government agreed to pardon all 306.

COWARD is a 28 minute film set during World War 1 that brings to light the brutal treatment soldiers received for suffering what would now be known as shell-shock. It follows two cousins, Andrew and James, from their home in Northern Ireland who join the British Army to fight for their country and make their families proud. Through their eyes we see the reality of life on the front lines.

Director: David Roddham
