WWI

About the show

History is marking the 100th anniversary in August 2014 of the start of World War One with a four-hour miniseries focussing on the game-changing weapons that were introduced during the war that was supposed to be the war to end all wars.  It turned out to be a transitional war where ancient tactics like set ground battles with troops bunkered down in vast trenches became overwhelmed by powerful new weapons including tanks, WMDs, submarines and the first blitz. These weapons would define modern warfare.
