Colorized historical footage in ascending order of World War 1. Not only the relatively known Flanders and France battles, but also the generally unknown Italian-Austrian, German-Polish-Russian, Japanese-German, Ottoman Empire- Allied and African German Colonies, and other unknown or forgotten fronts and battles. Original French production retold in English for National Geographic channel as: World War 1: The ApocalypseWritten by
I first saw this on the AHC Channel in the US and, as a former soldier, was overwhelmed by what I saw and heard. The English narrator, François Arnaud, had the perfect, nearly monotone delivery that could send chills down your spine. His delivery was flawless and as far as I am concerned, really 'sells' the English version of this project. I cannot comment on the French as I do not speak it. I have enough trouble with English. The video itself was surprising in its quality and the colorization was just enough to allow you to better see what Mr. Arnaud was speaking about. The overall historical content, giving the time restraints, is amazing, really showing you that this was a World War.
