By any standard, World War I (1914-19) still checks in as one of the most devastating military conflicts in modern history, with an overwhelming 37 million casualties. It was also one of the most complex struggles, with numerous shifting alliances and complex transnational relationships. This ambitious, sweeping documentary program uses such elements as archival battle footage and interviews with WWI soldiers to offer a detailed breakdown of the struggle. It takes a chronological approach, beginning with the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand in 1914, through the last waning struggles of the autumn of 1918, and touching on such pivotal events as the rides of T.E. Lawrence and the slaughtering in Russia. Segments include: With Flags Waving, Flyboys, Citadel, Revolt and End Game.
