Universal Pictures (UK) has joined forces with The Royal British Legion to promote a range of DVDs that will also raise money for the charity. To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the start of the First World War and the 70th anniversary of the D-Day Landings, Universal Pictures has re-packaged some of the studio’s most celebrated and acclaimed films and TV adaptations on the subject of war: ALL QUIET ON THE WESTERN FRONT, BIRDSONG, ONE OF OUR AIRCRAFT IS MISSING, SANDS OF IWO JIMA, BORN ON THE FOURTH OF JULY, JARHEAD, CHURCHILL, GREEN ZONE and INGLORIOUS BASTERDS.
To celebrate this initiative, three lucky History Vault readers can win a DVD bundle containing all 9 of these titles! To be in with a chance simply complete this month’s quiz (via the highlighted text below) and no matter what your score your name will be entered into the draw. The winners will be announced on the 13th June 2014.
Universal Pictures (UK) are committed to raising £10,000 over the course of the year, but are hopeful that there is potential to exceed this. Given the general public’s generous support for The Royal British Legion and the focus on commemorations throughout 2014, Universal hopes to achieve a total of £25,000. Universal Pictures (UK) will also be working with The Royal British Legion to host special screening events and commemorative activity this year to further support this campaign. The entire collection is available to buy on 12 May 2014 from selected retailers and online for the price of £5 a DVD.
