WW1 – The First Modern War

This is the epic story of how The First World War changed the face of battle forever.

This War was a war of “firsts”, a transitional war from old style hand-to-hand combat with small guns and fixed bayonets and cavalry charges to high tech weaponry that are still features of present-day armed conflicts. “Firsts” include aerial bombardment of cities, epic tank battles, fight for control of the skies, development of submarines, chemical and bunker warfare.
