A Global Guide to the First World War

The story of a global conflict in the voices of 10 historians from around the world.

Ten historians from 10 countries give a brief history of the first world war through a global lens. Using original news reports, interactive maps and rarely-seen footage, including extraordinary scenes of troops crossing Mesopotamia on camels and Italian soldiers fighting high up in the Alps – the interactive film experience explores the war and its effects from many different perspectives.

You can watch the documentary in English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Arabic or Hindi (thanks to a partnership with the British Academy).
