Description by OLDIES.com:
THE CONCISE HISTORY OF WWI: Mons, Ypres, the Somme, Tannenberg, Gallipoli, Passchendale: from the muddy bomb craters and barbed wire of no man's land to the horror of the trenches and the senseless mass slaughter of a generation, World War I remains history's most tragic conflict. This DVD tells the chronological story of the ghastly fighting of 1914-1918 in what became known as the 'war to end all wars'.
THE BATTLE OF THE SOMME: The Somme Offensive has gone down in history as one of the bloodiest battles of the modern age, as over a million men were killed or wounded during trench warfare that raged for over four months in Northern France. Featuring footage from the battle itself, this DVD offers a unique view on a period of history that altered the course of the war, and had profound effects on the future of armed combat.
