World War I

 

This is a tribute to all those poor souls who fought and died during WWI using historical footage and voice recordings mostly from the documentaries Forgotten Voices of the Great War and Voices of the Great war. A special thank you to KingofClapham for providing me some footage from his documentary. I know it is still a couple months till memorial day but I decided to make this video never the less. From the Germans to the French. From the Turks to the Aussies. The British, The Canadians, the Americans, the Russians, the Austrians and everyone else. Least we forget.

WW1 documentary from BBC. (For more WWI / WW2 and other docs, visit my channel) The story of the Great War told from a unique new aerial perspective. Featuring two remarkable historical finds, including a piece of archive footage filmed from an airship in summer 1919, capturing the trenches and battlefields in a way that’s rarely been seen before. And aerial photographs taken by First World War pilots – developed for the first time in over ninety years – show not only the devastation inflicted during the fighting, but also quirks and human stories visible only from above. We discovered that the huge networks of tunnels dug by both the British and Germans still lie underneath the villages along the Messines Ridge. We also learn the heroic yet tragic story of Jacques Trolley de Prévaux, the pilot who flew the airship above the Western Front and made the film in 1919.
