Both are well made - & use original film footage and images that have been cleaned-up, colored, and sound tracks added to explain how it all happened.
While we need to realize that all video producers will tell the story as they want to - and that their editing and commentary is designed to present their view-point - I have no complaints about the integrity of either war documentary. - The facts of stupid - unnecessary, bloody slaughter are obvious.
British Machine Gun Team - Somme.
World War I - or "The War to End All Wars" lasted from 28 July 1914 to 11 November 1918 - and is reckoned to have slaughtered more than 18 Million of us from a total of some 41 million casualties.
World War II that lasted from 1 September 1939 to 2 September 1945 is recorded as causing over 60 Million Deaths .. it is more likely that figure is above 80 Million including deaths from disease & famine. - Did you know that more than 5 million prisoners-of-war were starved to death?
Released Australian Soldiers - Singapore 1945.
- Since the end of WWII in 1945 - 73 years ago - we have continued to kill at the rate of around 1 Million every year in multiple conflicts .. such as Korea, Malaya, Congo, Biafra, Rwanda, Vietnam, Cambodia, Bosnia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Myanmar, etc, etc.
Racism, Religion - Riches & Royalty..
the real causative "3Rs of war". - Ah - is that four?
Well worth taking the time to see how vicious & bloody stupid governments can be - in between watching the latest inane bollocks from Trump. "Genius" my ass.
