Very Good But Not Definitive,
This review is from: The First World War - The Complete Series [DVD] (DVD)
Great coverage of the causes of the war and the often overlooked actions in China, the Middle East, Italy and the Eastern Front. However quite disappointing that both Verdun and the Somme battles are compressed into just two thirds of one 50 minute episode and the 'Race for the Sea' and the first, second and third battles of Ypre are omitted altogether.
Overall a very good series but I would recommend that viewers supplement the content by reading Hew Strachan's books on which it is based.
