Rare historical footage made vivid with new technology
World War I claimed the lives of 10 million soldiers and shaped an entire century. Narrated by four-time Academy Award® nominee Kenneth Branagh, this extraordinary documentary brings the war’s horror and heroism to life in a way never before revealed. Rare archival film--meticulously colorized under the guidance of expert historians--makes the past fresh, relevant, and alive.
In addition to these newly reclaimed sights and sounds, surviving WWI veterans share their experiences, personally testifying about life in the trenches, the terror of "going over the top," and the courage and sacrifice of battle. Analysis by military historians, detailed maps, and excerpts from the diaries and letters of men and women in the struggle offer a full range of perspectives on this unimaginably brutal, bloody clash of empires.
Since 1990, the British team of Philip Nugus and Jonathan Martin has created popular, critically acclaimed historical documentaries, including Hitler’s Bodyguard and The Century of Warfare.
This documentary was well done, and the color adds to the amazement of the scenes.
Though, some scenes were actually being used repeatedly throughout the film and it is a little boring and seemed BBC has limited footage in this subject area.
I personally learned a great deal about the war that my American grandfather lived through.
I used this for my history class. Not bad. Not very engaging for high schoolers. I definitely liked it more than the kids did. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Christopher P.

Great documentary! I love how it explains the war from all sides. It gives the viewer a understanding of not only the battles but of the pre and post war era's as well.Published 7 months ago by Kenneth B Kuprewicz
It was good but not great. I watched in once and that was enough. That is all I have to say. Thank youPublished 12 months ago by Rod Stites
It's very sobering to realize that all of the people you see onscreen have died very recently. The oldest WWI veterans were over 110 years old; the last one died in 2012. Read morePublished 13 months ago by Joe Moorman
