The First World War: An Historical Insight
The First World War: An Historical Insight
  • Description

    The First World War Documentary (DVD);The First World War is the definitive documentary series about the global conflict which shaped the 20th century. Based on the book by Hew Strachan and narrated by Jonathan Lewis, the series covers all aspects of the war. The popular view of the First World War is dominated by cliché. Young British soldiers, many of them budding poets, were led to early and ghastly deaths in muddy wastes by incompetent generals for reasons that were seemingly futile. And although clichés are not necessarily lies, they are at best a selective view of the truth. This is a stunning account of the hostilities which offers new interpretations of and insights into one of the defining events of the twentieth century. And, for the first time, it offers a truly global vision of a conflict which is often misconceived as a prolonged skirmish on the Western Front. Accessible, compelling and utterly convincing, this is modern history revealed at its finest.

Concise and absolutely the best

I started watching this series on the BBC recently and it is so detailed, concise and covers the complexities that make this for me the absolute best way to understand the First World War and how it was the event that changed our lives for ever irrespective of the 2nd World War.
