    I hope you enjoy our complete history of World War One - 'the war to end all wars'. This series - produced in 2015 - has been re-edited and re-released in 2022, as previous versions were age-restricted by KRclip (presumably because human remains were visible in a few photographs - though always in a clearly historical, non-sensationalist context. The precise reason is never given by KRclip. For those interested in what an 18+ history video looks like, you can watch the previous version here: krclip.com/video/GG0LY8OLBG8/비디오.html). Unpredictable decisions by KRclip can make life quite uncertain for military history creators, which is why we are so grateful to all our supporters at Patreon - please consider joining their ranks! www.patreon.com/EpicHistoryTV

    It's insane hearing the losses of individual battles. "60,000," "100,000," 'quarter of a million." Each of those people had families, passions, stories, dreams. Forever silenced by war.

    When I was a boy, the men who fought in WWII were in their 50s and 60s, and I talked to several old men in their 70s and 80s who had fought in the "Great War." Some of them knew men in their youth who fought in the American Civil War. It's crazy to think that I "knew the men who knew the men" who encapsulate so much defining history of our nation. I watch this perspective ebbing away, everyone buried in the current petty age. Even if it dies with me, I'll carry it proudly to the end.

    Back in mid 1990s, I’d spend my summers reading the encyclopedia about world wars, including ww1. I was engrossed with the story and the photos i would see in the pages of our two volumes of encyclopedias. After finishing the ww stories in one encyclopedia brand, I would go and read the other brand. People today are so blessed being able to watch such an amazing animated rendition of ww1.

The intricacies of this wars start is fascinating. And the lessons learned in this war trickled into WW2 and modern warfare.

    What a great educational video detailing the specifics of WW1. Growing up in California I was never given any detailed explanations of WW1 through public schooling. We were taught to memorize a few dates, causality numbers , technological inventions and thats it; I had no idea of the territorial exchanges or the number of countries involved. This education comes at a time where I find it to be truly necessary to the United States and citizens around the globe. As those who do not know their history, are doomed to repeat it.

      I don`t find it fantastic at all. It doesn't consider so many details we already know. Gerry Docherty & Jim Macgregors view on this war is quite the opposite of this version here. As long as the old story is told, nothing will change. The told story is: Germany starts the war. But it isn't that easy! Germany's not an actor, it is reacting. You might read a lot of books and listen to many historians, but to get a close look on historic truths, you must also read the inconveniant historians and and one must ask oneself whether these alternative views are not plausible. Without learning facts from books like "Hidden history", "Prolonging the agony" and "Wiederkehr der Hasardeure" (transl. return of the hasardeurs), you cannot break up encrusted victors' history and make the truths visible. The only way to prevent history from repeating is to understand the mechanisms that led to mobilisation and declaration of war. The back story is the linchpin.

    To my discredit, I never knew much about WW I. But this utterly gripping documentary has helped to change that. It's an edge-of-your seat thriller accented by stunning casualty figures, perpetual Allied setbacks, and the pointlessness of it all. It gobsmacked me like little else I've learned about in history, Most of all, I was amazed at how truly 'world' this war was. Thank you, Epic History TV, for your substantial contribution to educating people like me about the true scope and cost of war, one whose wages are still being paid today.

    Fun fact: the Austro-Hungarian empire had a navy, although it was rather lackluster. It was comprised of 13 total battleships 9 of them pre-dreadnought ( basically useless ), and 4 dreadnoughts, the most notable of which was Szent István as it was the last ever built and one of the few battleships to be sunk by a submarine, it was also mentioned in the hoi4 achievement Better Than the Szent István where you have to get Miklós Horthy as a naval commander and build a battleship. Anyway the navy wasn't used much and it was only ever used in a fleet in being capacity as the vast majority of coal exports were from Britain and America meaning while at war all they had was the stockpiles they built up so they couldn't be used much, especially since the Adriatic was block by the strait of Otranto and their only ports were in the Adriatic. Obviously naval funding was of secondary importance to the empire as they had 1000 miles of coast whereas modern Germany has 1400 which would've been much more back then, so basically the Austro-Hungarian navy was worthless because it was easy to block in the Adriatic and their land army was much more important especially because they didn't have enough coal to supply it for long

    Thank you for this series! Id been trying to find a WW1 documentary that actually goes over all the major events including in Africa and the Middle east. So many documentaries are hyper focused on the theater between the western allies and Germany. The most popular ones seem to focus a lot on personalities and describing how how things were like in the trenches, and in doing this they dont have time to tell you about most of what happened in the war. Another type of documentary which I would love to find would be one that focuses on the technological advancements being made across the war, if anyone here has a suggestion on that it would be great.

    I enjoyed that!! It really puts it into perspective how devisating WW1 was but also the dramatic change in geography around Europe at that time. Such a fascinating period to try and learn and understand and even though it was a little over a century ago now, not much has changed in preventing future wars around the world only the way in which we conduct and orchestrate them. Only Time will tell if a full-blown WW3 happens or not but the scary thing is it kind of feels like it's already started.
    Great video and keep up the good work. 👍

      Actually WW1 was already WW2 and WW2 was WW3. The first WW1 was the 30 year war started by the Germanics. At that time, the British, French and Netherlands were already colonial masters in most regions of the world. Thus, it was technically the First World War. All 3 major wars were started by the Germans and all 3 were lost.

    Moral of the story: Germany is a beast. It looked like from the start till the end they won most battles and attacks and caused the most damage even though the allies had more troops and basically the whole world on their side. As an Austrian I'm not ashamed to say that Germany carried this fight for us. When I saw The US declared war on Germany I knew it was game over though. I took WW1 in school as it's a huge part of our history, but some things were forgotten so I just wanna thank the people who made this incredible film for making it so detailed and visually amazing :)

    Germany during both world wars always proved the superior power, but suffered by having their allies be almost useless and requiring them to send much needed men elsewhere. Plus, Germany's sea access is very easily controlled by the British, and land supply routes are tough in the middle of war and through battlefields. With better allies and safer supply routes Germany would've easily won both world wars (probably wouldn't have been a second one in that case)

      In US history, the teaching focuses on the numerous logistical, strategic, and emotional mistakes made by nations.
      - Germany overlooked a vital lesson - logistics. Their military suffered due to starvation.
      - While their technology excelled, they flaunted it instead of concealing it.
      - Their treatment of enemies was deeply disrespectful.
      - Many nations, including Germany, didn't prioritize individualism.
      Authoritarian regimes struggle in warfare. War is both an art and a science, requiring individualism and fostering societal ingenuity.
      These errors are unlikely to affect democracies or republics.
      - In authoritarian settings, reporting problems is feared, while in the USA, opinions are valued. Hence, starvation, inadequate training, and logistical problems aren't issues.
      - With each war, we unveil hidden technology. Democracies don't face the same pressure as authoritarian nations to showcase advancement.
      - Disrespecting enemies fuels future wars and revolutions. Some of USA's adversaries eventually migrated here due to our friendliness and values being a potent weapon. Disparaging your adversary can be as subtle as disregarding them. Some of the swiftest and most devastating wars stem from envy or insults. Avoid both, and you'll be the last to engage in conflict. You'll remain rested while your foe grows weary. Ideally, no war should occur at all.
      - Individualism is instilled in us, empowering the military even in commanders' absence. American free thinkers have shaped history, demonstrating that even one person can alter the course of conflict. Authority nations lack this.
      We're an evolving, learning entity, consistently improving. Pax Americana. Circumstances compelled us to evolve; other nations lag behind. While Germany boasts beer and France offers cuisine, for America, war is both an art and a science.

      Germany's main problem was usually strategic resources, i.e fuel and some rare metals.
      But yeah, having the british as your neighbor will inevitably lead to your sea access being restricted by them, since they're a literal island and the navy is a requirement for them to survive.

    This was a very excellent Program. Very well made and informative. I enjoyed the animations of flags over the map visually showing the progression and the back and forth movements of troops over the continents. I highly recommend this to anybody who is interested in war history and battle plans. The first I have learned about movements in WW1, we have all always seen a lot of history channel programming and Hollywood movies about WW2 but not often do we get the stories of WW1. Do give this video a watch and like if you enjoyedit.

    I was privileged enough to have received first party accounts of this war from my late Grandfather...
    He explained to me that their are no words that could ever explain the experiences that he endured during his active,combat experiences..
    The whole innovation of modern warfare along with modern technology right before his eyes.
    I will have to say one thing, @ least when the application of air warfare was introduced during this period of Military history, the pilots of both opposing sides took the time, care and respect to display a tremendous amount of compassion with regard to the articles involved with warfare.....

    Big fan of this history, spent a winter reading the entire book by John Keegan on this subject and it was time well spent. Your progam is excellent, especially considering how much material you covered in the span of just over an hour. People tend to gloss over the Dardanelles and the Armenian tragedy, so that was much appreciated. Thank you for putting this all together in an easily digested format. I've subscribed to your channel and I'm enjoying your other content.

    Unlike WW2, the first instalment was so incredibly close all the way to the end. I hate to admit it but also unlike WW2, America saved the allies near the end. With Russia out, one side finally had a clear advantage over the other.Ludendorff would not of been forced to go all in on a high risk offensive and would of been able to gradually gain natural momentum

    It is a good video, hits all the high points - but all parts does not mean exhaustive.
    Other parts you could have added:
    The German sea surface raiders all over the world.
    The story of the Senussi of Libya vs the allies, esp Italy.
    The story of Darfur, rebelling against the British who had just conquered it in 1914.
    The Arabian struggle of Jabal Shamar ally of the Ottoman vs Nejd who were allied to British. Or the Beda Sultanate and Idrisid Emirate of Asir who joined the allies vs the Ottoman.
    The struggle of Persia vs the allies who occupied it.
    You cover the Irish Easter revolt, but nothing of the many others: Kaocen revolt, Zaian War, Volta-Bani War, The civil war in Ethiopia, the Mad Mullah of Somalia.
    Then there is the whole sea war in the Mediterranean which was not covered much.

    It's crazy to think that this many individual people even existed with their own names, lives, families, friends, nicknames, inside jokes (idk if they understood the concept of an inside joke or if that term had been coined, but they had them surely), people they loved, pets, siblings, coworkers before war, hopes and dreams, etc. It's hard to believe that 300,000 Individuals existed let alone died in a single battle.

      Unfortunately this includes some very distorted propaganda. The Lusitania was carrying munitions and it's sank because the munition blew up.
      In 1980 the admiralty warned off salvage crews because there was still live ammunitions on the wreck.
      The ship sank in 15 minutes very close to land because while there was a small entry hole for the torpedo there was a very large one on the other side where the munitions exploded. Churchill was part of orchestrating this deception.

      They would more likely be amazed at how an hour long video could summarize a war like that. What is crazy is an American could have seen the Spanish American war, ww1, ww2, Korea, and Vietnam in their lifetime. They probably would have served in at least one of them and they would have seen how technology in warfare advanced
