The Great War looks at the first great conflagration of world powers in the Twentieth Century from 1914 to 1918 when a complicated patchwork of royal families, alliances and treaties dragged Europe, and finally America, into World War I. The film is loaded with rare footage of all the significant events of war including movie stars selling Liberty Bonds, the sinking of the Lusitania, and the horrific slaughter in the trenches of the main battlefields, all blended expertly with stirring orchestral music and illuminating narration.
Editor's Note
Alexander Scourby narrates this fascinating look at Western culture between the years 1914 and 1918, when the nations of Europe, and later America, plunged into a level of warfare unlike any known before. The muddy, rat-infested trenches of World War I--or the Great War, as it was initially termed--were so devastatingly traumatic that they forever changed the physical, intellectual, and moral landscapes of the Western world, serving as the final break between Victorianism and modernity. This documentary includes rare footage of WWI's pivotal events, from the assassination of Austria's archduke and the sinking of the Lusitania, to the Battle of Verdun and President Wilson's Fourteen Points for peace.
