This is our WW1 compilation video, originally released in 2016. Unfortunately, the original was demonetized and made 18+ by BRvid, presumably because of the very few (and carefully chosen) photographs of war dead (no actual reason was given). This was frustrating not only for the obvious financial reasons, but because the video was intended as an educational resource. The video has now been re-edited to remove some of the more explicit photographs. Hopefully BRvid will allow this version to remain available to those of all ages seeking to learn more about this important episode of history. For those wishing to support the channel you can find out more at

@simonjamesd I'm not saying that's not reality and it is regrettable that he has been forced to censor it. But from a business viewpoint and to maximise the amount of people this channel is able to educate, it makes sense to censore it so it is more accessible (eventhough I would prefer if they didn't have to). Blame youtube, not this channel.

@sam reynolds Not really understandable in my view - people die in war, war is hell - we shouldn't be censoring realities.

The most amazing thing is that basically you're looking at a map the whole entire time, but the animations, music, sound effects and pictures make it feel like you're watching a movie. And the narration is my favorite type (accent, voice, tone, pace). Thank you for these great videos!

This is the best way to really understand any wars in our history, showing what actually happened in a sequence one can visually see. Reading it in a textbook is nothing compared to this. Thank you

Hmmm I'd say it's more like one half of the coin. These visuals do not get into the core underlying motives of war. They do not elaborate on the politics and religious aspects involved. That's the other half of the coin, for which this format is less suited

It made no sense why BRvid demonetized the original video. It's like they are afraid of history and don't want people to be offended. We need to learn of our past in order to not make the same mistakes again. Either way this is the best WW1 documentary on BRvid and any history buffs should check it out.

@stoic This is a bit of an over generalized statement, but for the most part, WW1 was more brutal for its soldiers than WW2. But WW2 was far worse for civilians, and not just the Jews. Poles, Chinese, Belorussians... not to mention the Allies' air raids on Germany and Japan.

I mean no general knew what they where doing in this new type of warfare it was an actual meat grinder of trying to cross the trench and getting killed by machine guns. Ww2 was in a way a bit more honorable than being eaten alive in trenches by rats or your toes falling off . Just my opinion if I had a choice to live trough one I would chose ww2 a thousand times

I’ve always been a great lover of history, and while I had a basic understanding of WW1, watching this made me realize that understanding was seriously deficient! This was so well done. As others have said, you were just looking at maps (which fascinates me anyway) but it feels like you’re watching a movie! Strange but fabulous. I truly applaud the people making this very, very important vids. These important facts are no longer taught in our schools, including universities, and it is a travesty. When people on Twitter & other social media attack current political situations, I have to laugh. They write with such “authority” while knowing absolutely nothing and telling you that you’re ignorant! If it wasn’t so sad it would be very funny. Anyhow, thank. you again. I hit subscribe and notifications bell and look forward to more of these kinds of wonderful presentations. THANK. YOU!

Fun fact: There is a city in Canada, Ontario that was called "New Berlin" but during the first world war, it was seen as odd to have that as a name.. and upon hearing of the death of Lord Kitchener, took up the name Kitchener as a sign of British patriotism and anti-German sentiment.

wranglerboi 10 dias atrás
@WarVanEagle TV - More true in many more ways than most people realize. In fact, it is a MAJOR reason why WWII happened (it led Hitler to decry the "unfairness" of the Allied "punishment" of Germany for their part in WWI and his vengeful desire to retaliate), why much of what is going on in the Middle East is still happening (due the "promises" that the British made to the Turks and Palestinians that were never kept), and the breakup and eventual rise of African countries (which at the time were colonies of the various European countries that, due to the financial disastermath of WWI, were no longer able to maintain them and led to their long struggle to rise out of subservience into nationalism). Those who would deny history will only see humanity repeating the same mistakes. All we have to do is look around our so-call "modern" world and see how that is still being played today. The question is who will become the new rivals striving for power and conquest.

Britain could count of huge support where Germany could not. This, of course in time, resulted in Germany's defeat in the First World War as The Second.

53:32 I like how the German successful offensive on March 21, 1918 is described to "catch the allies off guard". It is exactly what happened a few months earlier at Caporetto, which is usually described by English historians as an “unprecedented catastrophe” or “the greatest defeat”. Double standards much?

WW2 may be the war always talked about and by this point have tons of movies, games and others inspired by it and how it was also brutal and terrifying but WW1 was even more terrifying despite WW2's atrocities. Most soldiers thought it was the end of times or the apocalypse, seeing those clouds of mustard gas, artillery obliteration of places, first time that technology later to be developed in WW2 was used, the horrifying scenes at the trenches, unaware of the U-Boats on the seas. Everything was still so raw it makes WW1 just more eerie and darker.

My great grandad, was in the Bore war, before ww1, was in the battle of mons, the retreat and reinforce at marne, the battle Ypres(1 and 2) and many of the well known trench battles, before the restructuring of the british army he was 1 of only 10 men to survive in his batallion, in ww2, his sons were in the Navy and armed forces and his youngest (my grandad) was barely a few months old when a bomb exploded outside the family home sending a 1 foot shard of glass hurtling towards his Cot just as his aunty picked him up a few seconds too late it would have gone through his head whilst my G.G.grand contunied to serve as a air Raid Warden. Im honestly so lucky to even exist and im so grateful for their bravery and it blows my mind that from the age he could join the forces my G.grandad was tempered by war its all he witnessed across africa and in 2 world wars.

The fact that the Germans and Russians were killing each other is something I don't lose sleep over. The real tragedy here is that the Poles, whose country was wiped off the map of Europe for 123 years, had to fight for the three belligerents in essence shooting and killing their own brethren. I've always said that Poland has one of the worst geographic locations in the world.

@J H France and Great Britain. And why did the Americans have to be brought on board first? Stupid for the British that they stopped being a world power at this point at the latest.
J H Mês atrás
@Tommi Heuni Fair enough. I'm basing my argument on the conditions on the west front where fairly matched opponents faced off. I am far less educated on the east front but from what I understand, the dynamic that created trench warfare were not as prevalent in the east. Instead you have one opponent that massively outclassed the other in terms of materials, training, logistics and leadership. And (going back to the west), of course the French and British were dug in. The point is, that the germans played a defensive game in the west, a game that they kept winning for a long time until France and Britain developed tactics that the germans could no longer defend against.
on the Western front is was much nearer to 1, and it vastly depended on the battle. They had a lot of men in Germany and lots of iron too so that helped

@Archives of Fantasy enormous armies fought face to face, with swords and shields and spears, on horses, elephants, used fire and catapults. You fought, you killed people by impaling them with your weapon, and did so until you were dead, or until all your enemiws were dead or retreating. Then they would saxk the nearest towns or xities, taking things for themselves, raping, enslaving, and destroying everything in their paths. Such was the way of warfare. It was a savage time inhabited by savage people. The weak were enslaved and the strong conquered. The way of the world since the first fight in human history.

This is the best documentary summary I have seen of this sad drawn out war. I have a personal interest in this war as my great uncle's from SA were involved, collecting all the medals, VC included. A book written in his honor, The Bravest Man in the British Army, as he was known. Jack Kelly VC. Excellent comments.

As a Canadian I was pleased to see the Canadian attack on Vimy Ridge was mentioned, Canada fought in the war not by choice like the United States, but because it was a dominion of Britain at the time, and that successful attack along with the many contributions that Canadian soldiers made fighting alongside British soldiers is important to our history as it came to lead to Canada's independence allowing Canadian officials their own seat at the signing of the Treaty of Versailles

Quite a new experience to rewatch this while a new war is happening in Europe. The senselessness of these invasions and the deaths never changed.

Nice one but you forgot to mention in 1914 the two very important victories of Serbian army against Austro-Hungarian army on Cer and Kolubara, forcing AH to relocate a lot of troops from other fronts and even ask for help from Germans. Also, Serbian Army offensive in 1918 also contributed to the fall of AH, with Serbian army even threating Budimpesta.

We are all so used to the term ,,The Allies,, from WW2 that in this video this word is used more than ,,The Enntente,,. Great video anyway,IT really helps me to learn more about WW1.

This just goes to show how easily it is to get the world at war, I hope we use history as a lesson and work towards peace today.

1:00:51 The French Commander has the look in his eyes that he is satisfied with the general discussion they just had and happy it has finally come to peace, but also has the look of he is worried that another war may come or this isn't the end of this yet, but yet a small bit of peace we will have until things erupt again in the future for some crazy reason of something happening to start this or something bigger which did happen as we all know!
