One of the items that placed "World War One" far and above other TV documentaries was the soundtrack composed by Morton Gould. I had already enjoyed his music, most notably his American Salute and the Pam American Suite, so I pleased with this music. Each episode opened with the introduction which to me was equal in dramatic quality to the "Song of the High Seas" from "Victory At Sea" composed by Richard Rodgers who also composed the soundtrack for "Winston Churchill: the Valiant Years". The rest of the music for the series was both dramatic, poignant, and simple. RCA records released a soundtrack album that is no longer available. If anyone has that soundtrack album please contact me.
