Long Shadow (2014): S01E01 – Remembering and Understanding


Introduction

David Reynolds traces the legacy of the Great War across 100 years and 10 different countries, examining how the war haunted a generation and shaped the peace that followed.

Outline

Professor David Reynolds shows how the common perception of the Great War as a futile slaughter has been moulded over time. The image of mud and trenches, poets and poppies was not the general view in the 1920s and 1930s.
