Lionsgate: 100 Years of WWI

Commemorating the centennial of the first World War, 100 Years of WWI arrives on DVD July 15 from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. Including a brand new mini-series, “The History of WWI: The First Modern War,” prior to its television broadcast, and three HISTORY® specials, the program offers an in-depth look at how the face of military strategy changed through weapon development and advanced intelligence. Using experts, eyewitness testimony and riveting archival re-creations, the 100 Years of WWI DVD is packed with over five hours of absorbing content and will be available for the suggested retail price of $14.98.

HISTORY’s 100 Years of WWI takes a comprehensive look at the battle that left 15 million dead, 20 million injured, and changed the perception of war forever. Harnessing the industrial know-how of combustion engines, airplanes and even the camera, WWI introduced game-changing weapons of mass destruction: armored tanks, chemical weapons, submarines and the aerial bombardments of cities. See how these weapons were developed and witness the devastation they left behind. Meet the first dogfighters who, in acrobatic encounters, developed many of the tactics and strategies still used today, including a German ace known as “The Red Baron.” Understand how people born into a simpler age learned to deal with the destructive engine of total war. The collection includes the four part mini-series “The History of WWI: The First Modern War,” as well as three specials “Modern Marvels: World War I Tech,” “Dogfights: The First Dogfighters” and “Man Moment Machine: The Red Baron & The Wings of Death.”
 
Yes, this is worth it... four parts and you will learn something important. A MUST FOR MILITARY FANS!
