Colorized historical footage in ascending order of World War 1. Not only the relatively known Flanders and France battles, but also the generally unknown Italian-Austrian, German-Polish-Russian, Japanese-German, Ottoman Empire- Allied and African German Colonies, and other unknown or forgotten fronts and battles. Original French production retold in English for National Geographic channel as: World War 1: The ApocalypseWritten by
I found this series playing on American Heroes Channel one evening and after watching the first five-minutes of the show I was hooked. The storytelling combined with the real colorful images via archival footage was amazing. Even the soundtrack was too-notch and added extra life to the scenes.
Extremely well done, and I would watch again just to try and absorb all the information that is presented. If you didn't know much about WWI and all it's its main characters and events - you certainly will after watching this. WWI was a horrible event that had many differing components, but also should not be forgotten for all the sacrifices that were made. This show definitely does the era justice in a good way! Highly recommended historical viewing!
