This week... the war ends.
Thank you for the information! I had seen World at War (and I have it home), but I did not know about the series The Great War so I will definitely check it out!The BBC World at War series was preceded in the early 60s with a WW1 series called The Great War (which is up on YouTube) . They were able to include many veterans, who at that time were in their 70s
Peter Jackson (Lord of the rings) is bringing out a film called "they shall not grow old." It looks interestingI was very much into 20th century history before, including WW1 and WW2. Well, I am still into history, but not so much the world wars anymore since I've consumed so much about them before. Since I think there are other people with similar interests that read this thread, I wanted to share some links regarding WW1 and WW2 (mostly WW2) which are about series, books and photos I've enjoyed over the years. I may remember some more things that I'd like to share, and if so I will post more in this thread.
Here are the links:
The Soviet Union long denied that the secret protocol to the Molotov-Ribbentrop pact – which was signed on 23 August 1939 – ever existed, only acknowledging and denouncing it in 1989 under Mikhail Gorbachev. Now, Russia has sought to normalise the non-aggression pact, arguing that the treaty had been taken “out of context” of the vicious realpolitik of 1930s Europe.
