Apocalypse: World War I

World War I brought about the sacrifice of an entire generation but could it have been avoided? How was it that such a cruel and far-reaching conflict occurred? This five part documentary series sets about answering such questions using some incredible archival footage, much of which is unseen but has all been brought to life by colour.

Apocalypse WWI takes a strategic and global approach to telling the complete tale of this war, from the relatively known Flanders and France battles, but also dives into the lesser known fronts including that of Italian-Austrian, German-Polish-Russian, Japanese-German, Ottoman Empire-Allied and African German Colonies, along with some other lesser known battles.

The narration featured really brings life to the memories and experiences of the men and women who had to endure such atrocity for four long years, and helps bring better understanding to how yesterday’s world was driven to apocalypse.
