    When you start work on a WW2 series, consider adding an averaged total death counter on the screen. Not big or with anything to draw lots of attention. Just a reminder that the human race should never spend so many casualties on a conflict. Ie if the video is 60 minutes long, make the counter go up by 22000 every second.

    the americans came in literally at the 55:00 minute mark in an hour long video on WWI. goes to show how little they did in comparison to everyone else. I wish hollywood and video game companies would get the idea

    Hm, it's 2:00 am, and I really need sleep. However, I'm a history nerd who is obsessed with WW1. The choice is clear. Sleep is for the weak

    I didn't even care that this was an hour long. The music, the representation, the design, the execution was all beautiful and I learned a lot, more than what I did at school. Amazing video. Once i start working I'll for sure donate.

    The thing that always gets me when watching/reading about WWI, is the utter inability of high command to apply critical thinking in real time. Every major battle resulted in massive never before seen levels of casualties with little or no gain. Yet time and again the high command continues its suicidal frontal attacks year after year sending men into walls of machine gun bullets. No one seems to have held up their hand and said wait a sec this ain't working so lets stop killing off an entire generation of men for nothing. The inhumanity of thinking about which side will run out of men first to try and reach victory instead of trying to simply end a war that is being fought for little more than nations honoring their treaty obligations. Just insane.

    So the germans pretty much faced the french+british+canadian+australian+US+british raj troups alone. And still held out in a war of attrition for 4 years. Austro-Hungary faced Russian+Romanian+Serbian+Italian troups similarly. So did the ottomans who faced British+Russian+French+Rebells Damn.... That is quiet impressive. And amidst a naval blockade by the best navy in the world, you gotta hand it to them. They're tough....

    At the end of the video, I felt greatful and privileged to have the food to eat, job to go to, air to breathe and freedom to experience. It's a testament to how deeply engrossing this video was. I was engulfed by the story telling. Just wow

    "This is not peace. It is an armistice for twenty years" 1919+20=1939 It sends shivers down my spine that Marshal Foch's words foreshadowed a worse and horrific World War
