Really shows that WW1 was a world war. Africa, Mexico, Middle East, Far East, are all shown at war. Explains that both the Germans and British sent armies to Africa. Connects the decisions of that time to the problems of the present. For example, shows how T.E. Lawerance was knowingly lying to the Arabs during the whole war so as to manipulate them for British ends.
The disintegration of the Ottoman Empire is described and it's effect on the war. The influence of the British to persuade the Moslems to start a holy war is related.
Includes an excellent section on Lenin and his rise to power with the aid of the Germans. Shows the appeal of communism to the suffering population of Russia.
Provides explanation of the Serbian problem in the context of the Austro-Hungarian empire. Good development of the multinational tensions that the new belief in nationalism was inflaming.
Excellent use of diaries to relate the effect of the German occupation of France. Covers the feelings in England at the start of the war.
The coverage of the feelings of the German people at the end of the war was fascinating. Letters, video were compelling. Analysis of the Kaiser, Hindenburg, Ludendorff, etc. was well done. Shows why Germans never believed they lost the war, but were betrayed.
I came away with the opinion that the world did not ever know why they went to war. The explanations offered to the soldiers did not convince them on either side. The presentation was even handed.
Recommend this documentary to anyone with serious interest in what happened in 1914 and how it changed the world.
Duration of 8 hours and 23 minutes. Uses video and letters from that era. Informative. Credible. Interesting.
