The Guns of August (1964)
The first months of the first truly global war
This documentary tries, but falls short of the quality of Barbara Tuchman's book. Worth watching anyway for the film footage. I am perplexed by the reviewer below who sees Ms. Tuchman as a revisionist and this film as propaganda. I do not view her that way at all. I think there is great value in history and that the original book was well researched and written. If only more world leaders would read it, the world would be a better and safer place. I remember John Kennedy said he read it and that it influenced his thinking. So, Goofy, you can bend over, kiss you little self and be glad he did because you came within a hair's breath of becoming a little puff of white ash during the Cuban Missile Crisis.
