One of the most outstanding war documentaries ever made... Not to be missed.
"Apocalypse: WW1" brings the war to life in a way never seen before. This Canadian documentary adds modern sound and music with the crude film of the era in a perfect blend of drama and poignancy.
We are shown the roots of the war; the contemporary European peace that existed on the continent from 1871-1914 along with the simmering tensions among the major European powers of the age. Done in a way that is never trite nor dull, "Apocalypse" explains what happened in the first "great war" of 1914-18: the clash of ideologies, the futility, the mass deaths in the new age of conscript soldiers, and the ultimate futility of it all in a world war that left 10 million soldiers dead. Probably the penultimate World war 1 documentary. Don't miss it.
