Absolutely Brilliant!
24 July 2016 | by allanradmanSee all my reviews

The Great War Diary can be found on Netflix. It is tremendous. In English and can be seen with English subtitles. The 8-part series is not as in depth as many documentaries. In fact, this is more of a docudrama mixed with real, almost never seen footage of the First World War. I would recommend watching this series along with the series entitled, The First World War, to get a fairly good flavor, if you will, of the horrors of that world calamity. Both series do complement the other though the second is an excellent documentary.

The Great War Dairy encompasses a lot more of the Eastern front than The First World War documentary. Other than the disaster at Gillopoli, I don't believe that documentary covers much more of the Eastern war.

We all know how it comes out at the end - no winners, only losers.
