All I can say is. ...See This! Originally released by CBS in 1964 this docu. uses nearly every scrap of newsreel footage that was seemingly shot from 1910 thru 1919 and had survived by the 1960s. Great job for CBS back at a time when their news programming could be as serious as anything that would later appear on PBS or the HIstory Channel. Kudos to CBS. From the people who started the war, the different heads of Europe, to the mobilization of troops in 1914, to the first combat flyers, to the sinking of the Lusitania & it's ramifications, to the gassing of soldiers on both sides and so much more. WW1 is caught in all of it's horror and Robert Ryan's superb narration would've made Edward R Murrow proud. This is a one of a kind docu. They just won't make anything like this again. Ten out of Ten
