War Without End

Email Print

There has been much in the news over the past two weeks commemorating the 10th anniversary of the beginning of the pre-emptive Iraq War.

The above YouTube video commemorates the ending of an even greater conflict, World War I, which began in 1914 and ended in 1918.

It is the concluding episode, “War Without End,” from the award-winning KCET/BBC series, The Great War and the Shaping of the 20th Century.

This is one of the most powerful and heart-wrenching documentaries you will ever watch, especially the never-to-be-forgotten recitation of the Siegfried Sassoon poem, Aftermath, by actor Jeremy Irons at the end of the program (which garnered an Emmy Award).
