Decisive Weapons

The Bayonet: Cold Steel

Series 1 - Episode 6 The Bayonet: Cold Steel



A history of the bayonet, a weapon employed to lethal effect against the Scots at Culloden in 1746 and still in use during the Falklands conflict of 1982, a stark reminder that hand-to-hand fighting remains a major feature of modern warfare in an age of hi-tech remote weaponry. Narrated by Sean Bean. Last in the series.
