In the first episode of Feeding Under Fire, a very inexperienced novice with a camera demonstrates how to make hardtack and talks about its history.
Watch, (cringe) and learn to how to make First World War hard-tack and hear some interesting facts from soldiers who survived on it as they fought between 1914-18. History, stories and a cooking show – what else do you need?
The first episode of the Feeding Under Fire public engagement series from Dr Simon Walker, Military Historian at the University of Strathclyde whose research is focused on the experiences of soldiers in the First World War.
