Description
This unconventional documentary series examines warfare in the 20th century, principally through vintage black and white newsreels shot by Britain's Pathé News (much of it unfamiliar to American audiences). There are no onscreen historians offering perspective, and the only background information is provided by occasional screens of scrolling text, allowing viewers to interpret the newsreel footage for themselves.

The first CD in the series covers World War I and the intervening years before World War II, and includes the silent film classic The Battle of Ypres. Produced in 1925 and never before released in the U.S., the film chronicles the three horrific battles fought near the Belgian town of Ypres (pronounced "wipers" by the British soldiers who fought and died there). Part Two profiles the leaders—Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini, Emperor Hirohito, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Winston Churchill, and Josef Stalin—involved in the most destructive war in history.
