[edit] Information

Doomsday World War 1 The First World War – carnage on a scale never-before seen. But how did it all start? And how did some key figures of WWII fare in the earlier war? In three episodes we trace their careers back to the battlefields of WWI, including Adolf Hitler, Bernard L. Montgomery, Hermann Goering, Charles de Gaulle, George S. Patton and Walter Model. Their personal stories are set against the backdrop of a bigger political and strategic reality.

[edit] The Fall Of Man

Montgomery and Hitler: two WWII leaders who participated in the start of the conflict that would define the first half of the 20th century: WWI. Like so many others, they go into the battles of the "Great War" in high spirits, but eventually, Hitler would use his wartime experiences to bait the German people and army with the promise to make amends for the results of the First World War.

[edit] Purgatory

At the battle of Verdun, Captain Charles De Gaulle is wounded by a bayonet and forced to surrender to German forces. His time as a German POW and Herman Goering making reconnaissance flights, shapes impressions of Germany, and will have a profound impact on their stances during World War II.

[edit] The Battle of Nations

In August and September 1918 the German Army suffers defeat after defeat, overwhelmed by Allied superiority in supplies, men and machinery. Germany has been brought to its knees. But could the bitter pill of defeat have created a generation of young Germans, ready to avenge the humiliation of World War I?
