    This is our WW1 compilation video, originally released in 2016. Unfortunately, the original was demonetized and made 18+ by KRclip, presumably because of the very few (and carefully chosen) photographs of war dead (no actual reason was given). This was frustrating not only for the obvious financial reasons, but because the video was intended as an educational resource. The video has now been re-edited to remove some of the more explicit photographs. Hopefully KRclip will allow this version to remain available to those of all ages seeking to learn more about this important episode of history.

      dimensional X First I don't know why you're commenting this on my comment. Second Ottoman Empire brings in the middle East and Germany had many colonies in Africa and Asia that were involved in the conflict. Plus most of the world was neutral until the end of the war when it was clear the entente were going to win

      @S C in my opinion other than what they did to the jews ww1 looks worse... I mean no general knew what they where doing in this new type of warfare it was an actual meat grinder of trying to cross the trench and getting killed by machine guns. Ww2 was in a way a bit more honorable than being eaten alive in trenches by rats or your toes falling off . Just my opinion if I had a choice to live trough one I would chose ww2 a thousand times

      I worry that the allies humiliated Germany too much at the end of ww1, taking such large portions of land on all sides (not to mention what did Africa do to deserve being served up like a piece of pie) corners of their land they took national pride in, it just sowed too much hate and resentment over the following decade and a half among its citizens. It's not excuse for what they did during ww2 but I think there's a lesson to be learned. If you are going to allow a power to continue to exist, it might not be a good idea to beat them down and leave them with such shame they cannot let it go. They had way too much incentive to not let it end that way. It's sad because maybe of all the needless slaughter on all sides especially what would start at the end of the 30's.

    The most amazing thing is that basically you're looking at a map the whole entire time, but the animations, music, sound effects and pictures make it feel like you're watching a movie. And the narration is my favorite type (accent, voice, tone, pace).

      I don't know why they sent their own soldiers, mostly civilians who enlisted in the last hour. They should have caught people from their colonies like Africa, India and all, maybe 500 million of them and sent them to fight their enemies with bare hands.

      From the stories I've been told, if the soldiers were on patrol and they ran into an enemy soldier they wouldn't shoot unless the enemy shot at them. But that isn't the case for every solder.

    General Lettow-Vorbeck is so overlooked and its really sad because he fought off the Entente troops for almost 4 years and won most of his engagements. And also the fact that he surrenders a full 3 days after the armistice is just so cool to me. People really should give him more credit during ww1

      @Chris Kalogrias I think you could make the case of not comparing percentages based on world population in between each era, and seeing the casualties individualized. Alexander’s campaigns lasted 10 years or so? In 5 months, more husbands, brothers, sons and friends were lost than 10 years worth of killings. Regardless of the number it represents.

      Jonathan Long 4 개월 전

      @Chris Kalogrias I mean its still crazy to think about the fatal count of Vietnam was roughly 58k and that was the casualty count of a couple hours for a single battle in ww1 so i mean the comparison stands.

Oh and BTW berlin was taken by USSR. So nazism was defeated by Russia. USA defeated Japan. USA didn't win WW I nor WWII.

      If you're interested in possibly the best war history documentary series ever made, in my opinion, check out "battlefield" there are I think 5 seasons on world war 2 and a separate series in one season called battlefield: Vietnam (not to be confused with the video game)
      They are absolutely fantastic, they go over the politics, disposition of belligerents, the generals, equipment, formations, everything, they're a bit dry with not much dramatic flair but I personally prefer that style, just straight up history without all the fluff.

    As a Canadian I was pleased to see the Canadian attack on Vimy Ridge was mentioned, Canada fought in the war not by choice like the United States, but because it was a dominion of Britain at the time, and that successful attack along with the many contributions that Canadian soldiers made fighting alongside British soldiers is important to our history as it came to lead to Canada's independence allowing Canadian officials their own seat at the signing of the Treaty of Versailles

      @JAquino Yeah the Canadian Corps were pulled together by the British Army to work as part of their forces, it was British first army commander General Henry Horne who planned the Vimy Ridge attack, and his planning combined with barrages from allied troops and the determination of the Canadian Corps led to the majority of the ridge being captured in a single day on April 9th, by the 12th the whole of the ridge and it's villages were under Canadian control, and to this day the ridge park is marked as Canadian land in spite of it being in France

    • Spektacles
      Spektacles 년 전 +2

      @Gundar Varr That's incorrect, while Canada does still have ties to Britain in that a vote of no confidence could lead to a British government member temporarily taking over before a new Prime Minister would take on leadership, the queen cannot force Canada to go into war, in 1939 when Britain went to war during World War II the Canadian government felt it was a good decision to aid Britain knowing the long history between the two nations as allies and trade partners and the majority of the people supported this at the time because for many it was where many Canadians had migrated from
      If Britain went to war now with Russia to help Ukraine it would ultimately be a decision by Trudeau whether Canada goes to war or not and as for the people I feel it would be more split, Canada's population is much more varied with immigrants from many different nations with different views of the world

    I'm sure that this leaves a lot out, but I know that in June 1919, the remnants of the German Navy were taken to the north of Scotland to salvage the steel from the ships. There were barely enough German naval soldiers to run the ships under Allied control, but rather than see their ships scrapped for their enemy's gain, the German naval soldiers mutinied and scuttled the last bits of the German fleet and died several months after the Versailles Treaty. Many consider THEM to be the last casualties of the First World War.

    I’ve always been a great lover of history, and while I had a basic understanding of WW1, watching this made me realize that understanding was seriously deficient! This was so well done. As others have said, you were just looking at maps (which fascinates me anyway) but it feels like you’re watching a movie! Strange but fabulous.
    I truly applaud the people making this very, very important vids. These important facts are no longer taught in our schools, including universities, and it is a travesty. When people on Twitter & other social media attack current political situations, I have to laugh. They write with such “authority” while knowing absolutely nothing and telling you that you’re ignorant! If it wasn’t so sad it would be very funny.

    • Captain Nathan
      Captain Nathan 10 개월 전

      @SMOKEY FALCON That is criminal as far as I’m concerned. I was lucky to go to school while education from kindergarten right through high school completion was filled with history lessons from ancient history through Greek & Roman empires to the great European wars, to the founding of America, Russian Revolution and up through Viet Nam wars. We were taught geography, how to read maps, how to figure compound interest, how to write a check, the great philosophers & writers, geez, I’m exhausted just reading my own words😂.
      Bottom line, we got “educated” and came out of high school knowing more than college graduates with graduate degrees do today. Not bragging, just really sad at what has been done to our education system overall. They do such a disservice to the kids who are embarrassingly uninformed about so much.
      And, not to get political….but I will…by saying it all began the downward slide in USA when in 1962 JFK allowed collective bargaining in government/schools. Public employee unions are, literally, “bargaining” with themselves! Think about that; they’re the boss and employee. So a win-win for government employees and departments and tax payers and academic standards be damned.
      This is why I love these kinds of programs on KRclip. They’re a great service and I hope KRclip appreciates that supporting historical programs and other well done presentations like these serves only good. As for gruesome war photos, that’s what wars result in and the more people see them the more they’ll learn NOT to start them.
      Sorry to ramble Smokey Falcon, but that was a salient comment. Keep watching and God Bless!

  • You're not my supervisor

    Some slightly deeper explanations:
    1. Italy never really wanted to be allied with Austria-Hungary. Although Italy and Germany had been co-belligerents in prior wars during their unifications, Austria-Hungary had been the main opponent of Italian unification, and still controlled territory near Venice that Italy believed properly belonged to them. But in the 1880s, Italy and France were trying to colonize the same parts of Africa, and Italy was concerned that they might wind up at war with France- a war they couldn't win. So they reluctantly joined the Triple Alliance. By 1900, the danger of war with France had passed and it became quite clear that Italy wanted out of the alliance. To wit, Austria-Hungary actually drew up plans to invade Italy and seriously considered doing it in 1911. They didn't, however, and when Austria-Hungary declared war on Serbia, Italy finally had their escape hatch and pulled out of the Alliance.
    2. The Schlieffen Plan actually called for a tiny token force to guard eastern Germany while the majority of the German Army invaded France via Belgium and the Netherlands. But the German chief of staff at the war's start didn't believe the plan could actually work so he changed it, notably that he left more forces in the east to face Russia (despite how badly Russia had fared in their recent war with Japan), and did not invade the Netherlands. So as it played out, Germany bogged down in Belgium, and was stopped at the Marne as shown in the video. Would Schlieffen's plan have worked better? There's no way to know, but Nazi Germany did do a version of it in 1940 and it was wildly successful. Although it also involved driving a lot of tanks through the Ardennes and tanks weren't invented yet when Schlieffen came up with his plan.
    3. The collapse of Austria-Hungary was actually already starting as the Battle of Vittorio Veneto was being fought. It was pretty clear that the empire wasn't going to win the war, so Hungary's parliament voted to declare independence on October 17. Within days of the battle's end, what would soon become Czechoslovakia and Yugoslavia also declared independence (on October 28th and 29th, respectively). When Austria-Hungary signed the armistice at Villa Giusti on November 3rd, the empire was already shattered. On November 11th, the Emperor issued a declaration that (deep paraphrasing) he was going to allow Austria to become a constitutional monarchy, but the writing was on the wall and everyone just took it as an abdication (even though he had deliberately avoided abdicating). Austria immediately became a republic and banned the Habsburgs. The Emperor also happened to be the King of Hungary, so when Hungary later became a monarchy again (it's complicated), he tried to take his throne back but nobody accepted it and Hungary became a kingdom without a king- an old Austro-Hungarian Navy admiral became the "regent" and ruled Hungary until he was overthrown by the Nazis near the end of World War II. Anyway... this is why Austria and Hungary signed separate peace treaties after the war- they were already separate countries by that point.

      @WarVanEagle TV - More true in many more ways than most people realize. In fact, it is a MAJOR reason why WWII happened (it led Hitler to decry the "unfairness" of the Allied "punishment" of Germany for their part in WWI and his vengeful desire to retaliate), why much of what is going on in the Middle East is still happening (due the "promises" that the British made to the Turks and Palestinians that were never kept), and the breakup and eventual rise of African countries (which at the time were colonies of the various European countries that, due to the financial disastermath of WWI, were no longer able to maintain them and led to their long struggle to rise out of subservience into nationalism). Those who would deny history will only see humanity repeating the same mistakes. All we have to do is look around our so-call "modern" world and see how that is still being played today. The question is who will become the new rivals striving for power and conquest.

    I'm a 5th grade teacher. We have included the original (and now presumably revised) video since 2018. We show the first 20-30 minutes and the last 10 minutes. Our major learning goals are to become familiar with the basic facts and imagery of WWI that set it apart from other wars, especially WWII, because 5th graders usually have a very limited sense of historical timelines. The video also supports our targets for learning global geography and the "one thing leads to another" course of history. The restricted notice at the beginning looks alarming, but handled with respect for history there is little to be concerned about content-wise. There is no sex or profanity. There is no political angling. There is grainy, black-and-white imagery of war, both still and motion. Within these, there is next to nothing graphic and certainly gratuitous. I'm fairly conservative as a parent, and I don't feel concerned about sharing this video with my 5th graders each year.

The Russians lost 1.1 million in the battle of Kursk. Both of the Great Wars casualties are hard to wrap your head around.

      @Thurman53 if you look at the actual numbers in each battle and the equipment involved more men were in the field fighting in First World War than in any battle on the western front in WW2. Prior to attacking a :1,000 guns fired almost non stop for three to five days to soften up a small front of about three miles. Today’s armies battle to put a 1,000 guns across complete armies.

      Impossible for us to in America outside some kind of nuclear war. Our largest in a day EVER was in our own civil war at Antietam, which I believe was half that number. The only way for Americans to understand WWI would be to look at our closest equivalent, Vietnam, and ask what it would be like if basically all 18-30-year-old men in the 1960s had been drafted and wiped out in the war... that's what Europe dealt with.

    I watched this after seeing All Quiet On The Western Front and realising I knew absolutely naff all about ww1. I'm shocked to see how many countries participated and how it's shaped the world we recognise and live in today!
    Great video, thank you.

    59:46 The German general Erich Ludendorff wrote that, without the Italian victory at the battle of Vittorio Veneto, the Central Powers could have resisted until the spring of 1919.

    Henry Gunther’s story is a sad one.
    He was quickly promoted to Sergeant for being a good soldier on the front after arriving in July of 1918 but then wrote home to a friend about the “miserable” conditions at the front and wrote a friend encouraging him to do anything he could to keep from being drafted. When the Army’s censors read that letter they didn’t like it and so Sergeant Gunter was demoted to Private.
    Gunter felt shamed by this and wanted to get his rank and honor back before the war ended. Gunter then charged a German road block that included a machine gun against orders of his close friend who was a Sergeant. The German soldiers manning the road block knew about the armistice and so shouted and Gunter urging him to turn back. Gunter fired a shot or two at the Germans who were then forced to return fire and kill him 1 minute before the armistice went into effect
    Just a sad story about a good soldier who was unfairly demoted just for speaking his mind.

      And to think, with a name like Gunter he was probably of German ancestry.

      @PORRIDGE GUN he was. Both his parents were children of German immigrants
      That’s a good catch

      @Zack Stump we're forgetting those soldiers were 21-22 year olds in 1918 who were reckless and quite ignorant
