A Fantastic Documentary on WW1,
This review is from: World War 1 In Colour - Complete TV Series [DVD] (DVD)
Enough already from the pompous so called know all historians of the Great War. Not everything is black and white guys. This is simply the best documentary series I have seen on the Great War and having it in colour creates that extra dimension not seen in any other documentary on the greatest turning point of the 20th century. Kenneth Branagh's eloquent narrative is a huge plus for this series, and the recollections of the war veterans is both touching and tragic. I have seen all the documentaries of the Great War and this one really hit a nerve with me. Obviously not many will agree with me, but who cares. If you know very little about the Great War, this series is a fantastic introduction to it.
I have watched this series many times in the last few years, and it never fails to interest me. There is some repetition, but considering the time, tell me which documentary series on WW1 doesn't show repeated footage of battles. To those eager to criticise, relax, and appreciate something unique.
