An Excellent Period Piece
7 June 2014 | by Lewis01-228-458550See all my reviews

I rate The Crimson Field with 'Call the Midwife' and 'Downton Abbey.' It is British drama at its best with a fantastic cast of those some of you may remember from other shows. However, there is no stereotype in their roles from previous shows. Truly remarkable acting. What is equally important is that the show is true to the actually happenings, both from a historical point of view as well as social. The war itself was a slaughterhouse due to the ineptitude of the British and French generals and senior officers. Some of which is depicted in the series. It was a hundred years ago that the war began and truly didn't end until 1945. Again, the result of the British and French generals seeking retribution from Germany when the armistice took place.
