This programme looks at the establishment of the great military hospitals. Les Invalides in Paris and the Royal Hospital at Kilmainham near Dublin. Evidence from the Blenheim tapestries and at Gravelines and Kinsale throw light on the life of the soldier, as do demonstrations of how weapons were used by the History Re-Enactment workshop.
