 The movie documentary, The Great War And The Shaping Of The 20th Century: Explosion & Stalemate (Vol.1) includes the seperate titles Explosion and Stalemate. The documentary film, Explosion, represents a sweeping look at the conditions and events that caused the cataclysm of World War I to unfold. Through vintage film footage, rare still photographs, letters and diaries, and the voices of leading actors, this episode begins to shed new light on how the fuse was lit that led to the first man-made catastophe of the 20th century. The documentory film, Stalemate, explains that from the beginning the war was out of hand and new styles of warfare were producing new kinds of horror and unprecedented levels of suffering and death. The generals soon found that the many technical advances in weaponry far from forcing a quick outcome instead lead to trench warfare that seemed to go on forever. In the end trenches were dug on the Western Front from Swiss Alps to the English Channel. This episode clearly lays-out the misery and ingenuity of life in the trenches and ends with an extraordinary Christmas Eve truce.
