Episode 1 of DIG WW2 to air in the UK on Monday 27th August on BBC2

20th August 2012

WW2 DIG, presented by Pen and Sword author Dan Snow (The Confusion of Command) is a three part primetime TV documentary investigating the history of the Second World War in Northern Ireland. Dan Snow will be participating in archaeological digs and dives of military sites across the country, many of which have gone unnoticed or are now buried - but were central to the defense of the UK and Europe.

'The Confusion of Command' is the never-before-published papers of General Sir Thomas D’Oyly. They provide a remarkable insight into the mindset of the Great War commanders. This first edition of his letters and memoirs – published exactly 70 years after his death – has been introduced by his great grandson, the broadcaster and author Dan Snow.

"Very well written and illuminating."
