Brilliant
15 August 2014 | by raypekin-160-328265See all my reviews

I watched this show with anticipation & in the end, I found that it was absolutely brilliant. Not only is the production great, the acting superb, the story line, which are taken from actual diaries & stories of the soldiers in World War I. I found this show to be honest in it's reflection to the soldiers in the Great War. It must have been horrifying for the men & women who in the beginning thought it was to be an adventure. I highly recommend this series for all adults to see. Having said that, I would not let children watch this show as the special effects are graphic but well done. Looking forward to watching the rest of the series.
