I have "been here"
I tried to take a second shot on watching this video I only made it thirty minutes. Anyways this video is very informative on the conditions of war, but the narrator was kind of creepy (*shudders)
Agreed, did you hear that song at the start? That was so freaky, I'm glad I didn't live in England at that time I made it through 12 minutes so far. Im going to keep powering through.
Video looks interesting, though I doubt I can find the time to watch it.
What if I say you have to...:)
I watched about five minutes of the video it was packed with information. In the five minutes that I watched I learned a lot.
I watched the first little bit, and will watch the rest later this week when I find the time. World War I was the first real "modern" war, where the guns didn't take 20 seconds to load (even the bolt action weapons of the Spanish American War (and others) were slow. Of course there was the Gatling Gun and the Colt Browning, but I digress). The Great War was also the first war to really use trench warfare to an extent, and that really stunk, for lack of better words.
Like everyone else, I watched a bit of this but not all of it. It was very informative and I will watch the rest of it latter this week when I find the time. A lot of it will be helpful for social studies class where we are studying this material right now.
This was very informative and I learned a great amount from this. I thought that it was very dense and interesting.
I've actually seen this...but I watched about 10 or 15 mins to refresh my memory.
I only watched a dozen minutes of this video. In that small amount of time I learned alot of good information. This documentary is full of facts.
Becuase this was long and my day was a little busy, I wasn't able to watch it all. However I wold love to at some point
sorry fitz the comment from me is late but like a lot of people I watched only a bit of the video before turning it off, however, the part of the video that I did watch was really informative and dense. I very much enjoyed the first 20 minutes and hope to continue watching tonight
Going to watch it today.
I would be lying if I said I watched this whole video, to be honest I only watched the first 5-10 minutes, which were actually very interesting and were filled with knowledge. I could not believe I got that much out of it within 5 minutes.
Well, so here I am, after disbelieving everyone for saying that it is impossible to get through within one sitting, trying to do it. I have to say that it is indeed quite an informative video, but I got to 27:33 and took off. However, I must say, I learned something more about the Great War.
I watch a few minutes of this video, however my extensive interest in military history made it mostly redundant. The causes were explain fairly well, but the military section taught me (unfortunately) very little.
I watched the fist 30 min of the documentary. I got to the part where they are firing at the air crafts. It was very interesting but did nit hold my attention. I like the style that the narrator uses. He has a creepy voice and that adds to the theme of the documentary. This documentary is vbery well done but does not have enough battle scenes to hold my attention.
After watching the first 10 minutes, I learned a lot from this video. Will probably finish it some other time in the week.
I watched about 30 minutes and it still did not seem to catch my attention, but at the same time i learned a lot from it, even though I was not very interested in this documentary, I still believe that it is a very interesting topic to learn about.
this was a great little bit of info, (A ton of info) I got through the first 10 minutes and then decided to call it a day. I've watched a lot of documentaries about ww2, but never ww1 so I'll hopefully come back later this weekend to finish what I started.
I think this really did a great job of putting you into the shoes of a wold war one solider by using authentic footage combined with the voice overs by veterans. It was really captivating and good background for the book.
I was not able to watch this because my schedule is a little busy, but it looks very interesting.
