Product Description

Product Description

Professor David Reynolds takes a fresh look at the extraordinary events and personalities involved in the Armistice which brought the First World war to an end in 1918. He uncovers a story of wounded egos, political scheming and brinkmanship behind the lines as statesmen and generals haggled over the terms of peace while, at the front, the soldiers fought on as the cost of human life escalated. In a journey that takes him through command centres and battlefields, he explores why half a million men were killed or wounded in the bitter endgame of the 'Great War' and he unravels how Germany ultimately plunged to total defeat. In March 1918 the Germans nearly won the war; in November they not only lost it, their country also fell apart in revolution, leaving them unable to resist the Allies' harsh terms. So, for many Germans, the new order was a betrayal of all they had fought for a lasting resentment that would eventually fuel Adolf Hitler s rise to power. The events that led up to the Armistice are vividly told in this fascinating programme explaining exactly how Germany lost the war. November 11th proved to be a doomed peace - a prelude to a century-long struggle for mastery of Europe. David Reynolds argues that it was the frenetic politicking and brutality of the fighting in 1918 that sowed the seeds of the even bloodier Second World War just 20 years later.

Professor David Reynolds is a little too fascinated with the sound of his own voice in this WWl documentary focusing on the end of the "war to end all wars". It mostly focuses on the German commander Ludendorff and how he brings Germany to ruin & destruction thru his own ego trying to win the war. There are several other great documentaries on WWl that surpass this show (The Great War and the shaping of the 20th century from PBS is the best). Its unfortunate this show doesn't bring anything new to the table in our quest for understanding of the first World War.

This is an edited 55 minutes version of the 90 minutes full documentary that was shown on bbc4

Reynolds is a great historian and his documentaries on bbctv are excellent

I know its a edited version but I think its worth getting in understanding World War One

this documentaru explains how germany went from a position of strength in the spring of 1918 to total retreat by fall of that very same year. It gives a good account of the war as a Whole and provides an insight into the german side of the war, a wiev which is often neglected in most documentaries about World war 1. The relationship between the commanding german generals is well presented and their personalities are presented as well. Good value for money
