This is an amazing documentary apparently released to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the beginning of the Great War. Robert Ryan does a superb narration; calm, articulate, and level. Morton Gould's music adds greatly to the variety of emotions displayed in the footage. The film and still photos shown are gems and I feel privileged to be given access to them. Not named in the collection I have viewed are those who researched and wrote the history and those who edited and spliced together this work. They must be remarkable persons. The tidbits and range of information should interest, if not intrigue, anyone. The editing could set a standard today, both for the flow it gives each episode and for the thoughtfulness to detail and visual appeal. The collection I watched is a re-packaged, three disk DVD collection of the original 26 episodes. I have watched many of them two and three times so far and plan on viewing them more.
