Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well done! I am surprised tho find that I am the first to write a review! So I will try to be very helpful! This was a really good documentary about WWI! I have always wondered who was behind all of the images and clips of live WWI films and was surprised to find out that it was all one man! WWI does not get as much publicity as WWII and I am glad that Wondrium had this on their website! It is a nice reminder of WWI and of those who fought and died in it. I am sure that many of today's young people couldn't tell you what countries fought in this war or even any major events! I really like seeing live clips of the men who fought in the Great War and if you do to ( instead of just seeing pics on pages!) this movie is jam packed with them!
