'World War One - 1914' is the first in a five-part series covering the Great War. This episode covers the rival alliances that dominated Europe in the build-up to war, the Triple Alliance and the Triple Entente, and the fatal gunshots by Gavrilo Princip at Sarajevo that resulted in the death of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, heir to the throne of the Austro-Hungarian Empire.

Imperial rivalries, the system of alliances and deep-seated animosities helped propel Europe into a general war. However Woodrow Wilson, the US President, ensured America stood apart from Europe's conflict. In August 1914, Germany invaded France and Belgium as part of the Schlieffen Plan. The tiny British Expeditionary Force could only hold up the German army for a few hours at the Battle of Mons, but later joined the French in saving Paris at the Battle of the Marne. The 'Race to the Sea' followed, leading to the First Battle of Ypres, as both sides tried to outflank each other to the north. Their failure led to a stalemate, in which the devastating power of machineguns and artillery forced infantry of both sides to take cover in deep trenches.

At sea, Britain's Royal Navy won the war's first naval battle at Heligoland Bight, and imposed a naval blockade on Germany, preventing war supplies (including, controversially, food) from reaching the country by sea. HMS Pathfinder was soon sunk by a German U-boat, revealing the potential of Germany's submarines to overturn Britain's long-held naval dominance.

On the Eastern Front, a Russian invasion of East Prussia ended in disaster at the Battle of Tannenberg, masterminded by German generals Paul von Hindenburg and Erich Ludendorff. A second victory at the Battle of Masurian Lakes sent the Russian army into retreat. Austria-Hungary's invasion of Serbia began badly, with defeat at the Battle of Cer. Things went even worse on the Russian front, as Austria's offensive against the Russians leads to heavy losses, and forced Germany to come to the rescue, by launching the Battle of Łódź.

In Africa, British, French and German colonial forces clashed in British East Africa (Kenya), Togoland (Togo), German South-West Africa (Namibia), and German Kamerun (Cameroon). German Colonel Paul von Lettow-Vorbek had notable success repelling the British at the Battle of Tanga.

In the Pacific, Japan honoured its alliance with Britain and seized the German naval base at Tsingtao in China. Task forces from Australia and New Zealand secured the German colonies of Samoa and New Guinea. German Admiral von Spee's East Asia Squadron won victory at the Battle of Coronel, off Chile, before sailing into catastrophe at the Battle of the Falkland Islands. In the Middle East, British troops occupied Basra, securing access to Persian oil for their fleet.

Winter 1914 saw the French launch their first major offensive to break the trench stalemate of the Western Front. But the First Battle of Champagne led to heavy losses for no real gains. Ottoman operations in the Caucasus Mountains also ended in disaster at the Battle of Sarikamish. The war's first Christmas was marked by games of football in No Man's Land on the Western Front, but early hopes of a short war had now been entirely quashed.

CORRECTION: 7.55 - the map shows Cyprus as part of the Ottoman Empire. Cyprus was part of the Ottoman Empire from 1570 to 1914, but when the Ottoman Empire joined the Central Powers in November 1914, Cyprus was annexed by Britain.

'World War One - 1915' is the second of our five-part series covering the Great War. This episode covers one of the first strategic bombing raids in history, when two German Zeppelin airships bombed the British ports of King's Lynn and Great Yarmouth. At sea, the British Royal Navy won the Battle of Dogger Bank. Germany then announced an Exclusion Zone around the British Isles, where its U-boats waged 'unrestricted submarine warfare' against British ships.

On the Eastern Front, 1915 began with further success for German Field Marshal Paul von Hindenburg, defeating the Russians at the Second Battle of Masurian Lakes. But the Russians had their own success at Przemyśl, taking 100,000 Austro-Hungarian prisoners.

British and French battleships arrived at the Dardanelles, intending to force the Ottoman Empire to surrender by threatening its capital, Constantinople. But Turkish shore-forts and sea mines caused heavy losses amongst Allied ships. Troops landed at Gallipoli, including the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZACs), became pinned down by fierce Turkish resistance.

On the Western Front, the British attacked at Neuve Chapelle. Indian Army units played a major role, but the offensive ended in failure. A German attack at Ypres opened with the first use of chemical weapons on the Western Front.

In April, the Ottoman Empire began the arrest, deportation and execution of ethnic Armenians, whom they suspected of sympathising with Turkey's enemies. The events remain controversial, with the Turkish government arguing that the number of deaths has been exaggerated and cannot be described as 'genocide'. Most historians and many other national governments disagree, describing these events as the Armenian Genocide and placing the death-toll between 1 and 1.5 million.

At sea, British passenger ship RMS Lusitania was sunk by a U-boat, leading to 1,198 civilian deaths, including 128 Americans. President Woodrow Wilson and the American public were outraged. In response to American warnings, Germany agreed to suspend attacks on passenger ships.

A new Allied attempt to break the Western Front stalemate at the Second Battle of Artois ended with heavy losses, after failed attacks at Vimy Ridge, Aubers Ridge and Festubert. In the air, Germany gained air superiority thanks to the Fokker Eindecker, a monoplane armed with a forward-firing machine-gun.

In June 1915 Italy joined the war, attacking Austria-Hungary in the first of many battles of the Isonzo River. At Gallipoli, the Allies failed to break the stalemate with new landings at Suvla Bay and a series of attacks known as the Battle of Sari Bair (including ANZAC assaults at Lone Pine and the Nek.)

France and Britain launched their Great Autumn Offensive to relieve pressure on their Russian ally. But French attacks at the Third Battle of Artois and Second Battle of Champagne, as well as a British attack at the Battle of Loos, led to massive losses with few significant gains.

In the Balkans, the Allies landed troops at Salonika in Greece, hoping to bring aid to Serbia. But when Bulgaria entered the war on the side of the Central Powers, Serbian forces were outflanked and outnumbered. Belgrade fell, and Serbia was overrun. The Serbian army fled through the Albanian mountains, but suffered catastrophic losses from hunger and cold.

CORRECTION: the map shows Cyprus as part of the Ottoman Empire. Cyprus was part of the Ottoman Empire from 1570 to 1914, but when the Ottoman Empire joined the Central Powers in November 1914, Cyprus was annexed by Britain.

Peter Hart, The Great War: 1914-1918
A J P Taylor, The First World War: An Illustrated History

Epic History TV's year-by-year account of World War One continues into 1917. It is the year Germany makes a desperate gamble by reintroducing unrestricted submarine warfare. They hope to knock Britain out of the war in 6 months by cutting off her food supplies, but the new policy soon leads to an American declaration of war.

Russia is engulfed in revolution, leading to the abdication of Tsar Nicholas II. A Provisional Government takes charge in Russia, vowing to continue the war. But a second Bolshevik Revolution will lead to an armistice before the end of the year.

On the Western Front, it is the year of the Battle of Arras (ending with the Canadian capture of Vimy Ridge), the much-heralded Nivelle Offensive, the Battle of Messines, and Third Ypres (Passchendaele). In November the British also launch the world's first mass tank attack at the Battle of Cambrai.

On the Italian Front, German reinforcements from the east lead to a breakthrough at the Battle of Caporetto, with Italian troops in full retreat. In the Middle East, the British win victory at Kut and occupy Baghdad, while victory at the Third Battle of Gaza allows General Allenby to lead British forces into Jerusalem before the end of the year. In the Hejaz, the Arab revolt continues, leading to the capture of Aqaba, an operation advised by the legendary TE Lawrence, 'Lawrence of Arabia'. But the Balfour Declaration, promising British support for the creation of a Jewish homeland in Palestine, seems to contradict early British promises to the Arabs regarding an independent Arab state.

World War One - 1918

This is the story of 1918, the last year of World War One, when Germany launched a final do-or-die offensive, as American troops began to arrive in Europe in force.

1918 is the year that Woodrow Wilson unveils his 'Fourteen Points' as the basis for future world peace. Meanwhile Bolshevik Russia quits the war by signing the Treaty of Brest-Litovsk, freeing up half a million German troops for General Ludendorff's last ditch attempt to win all-out victory on the Western Front. His Spring Offensive, also known as the Kaiserschlacht, or 'Kaiser's Battle', comes tantalising close to success, but is finally halted by British and Australian troops at Amiens in April.

In the skies over the Western Front, the air war intensifies, but the Allies are now dominant. On 21st April Germany's most famous ace, Manfred von Richthofen, the 'Red Baron', is shot down and killed.

That spring US troops arrive in Europe in force. The US 1st Infantry Division goes into action at Cantigny, while US Marines and the US 2nd Infantry Division win a victory at Belleau Wood. US troops help to turn the tide as the Allies launch their Hundred Days Offensive, surging past the Hindenburg Line, and pursuing a defeated German army.

In the Balkans, Allied victory at Dobro Pole leads to the collapse of the Bulgarian army and an armistice. British-led forces win victory in the Middle East at Megiddo, and go on to occupy Damascus and Aleppo. With the writing on the wall, the Ottoman Empire signs an armistice with the Allies at Mudros. Austria-Hungary soon follows suit, after defeat by Italy at the Battle of Vittorio Veneto.

Shortages, military defeat and discontent lead to revolution in Germany. Sailors at the naval base at Kiel mutiny. The Kaiser is forced to abdicate, a republic is proclaimed, and an armistice signed with the Allies at Compiègne on 11th November 1918.

In 1919 delegates meet at Versailles, outside Paris, to conclude a peace treaty. The Treaty of Versailles imposes a 'war guilt clause' on Germany, huge war reparations, and limits the size of its armed forces. It gives territory to its neighbours, and creates lasting resentment within Germany, later exploited by Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party to foster a new German nationalism.

In the Middle East, British forces surrender at Kut, while the Arab Revolt begins in the Hejaz. But unbeknownst to Arab leaders, the British and French have secretly agreed to carve up the Middle East after the war in the secret Sykes-Picot Agreement. The war's only great naval battle is fought at Jutland, while the Italians face crisis after the surprise Austro-Hungarian attack at Asiago. In the Balkans, Romania joins the war on the Allied side, but is soon overrun by the Central Powers.

World War One - 1915 'es la segunda de nuestra serie de cinco partes que cubre la Gran Guerra. Este episodio cubre uno de los primeros bombardeos estratégicos de la historia, cuando dos aeronaves alemanas Zeppelin bombardearon los puertos británicos de King's Lynn y Great Yarmouth. En el mar, la Royal Navy británica ganó la batalla del banco Dogger. Luego, Alemania anunció una Zona de Exclusión alrededor de las Islas Británicas, donde sus submarinos emprendieron una guerra submarina sin restricciones contra los barcos británicos.

En el frente oriental, 1915 comenzó con más éxito para el mariscal de campo alemán Paul von Hindenburg, derrotando a los rusos en la Segunda Batalla de los Lagos de Masuria. Pero los rusos tuvieron su propio éxito en Przemyl, tomando 100.000 prisioneros austrohúngaros.

Acorazados británicos y franceses llegaron a los Dardanelos, con la intención de obligar al Imperio Otomano a rendirse amenazando a su capital, Constantinopla. Pero las fortalezas y minas marinas turcas causaron grandes pérdidas entre los barcos aliados. Las tropas que desembarcaron en Gallipoli, incluido el Cuerpo de Ejércitos de Australia y Nueva Zelanda (ANZAC), quedaron atrapadas por la feroz resistencia turca.

En el frente occidental, los británicos atacaron en Neuve Chapelle. Las unidades del ejército indio desempeñaron un papel importante, pero la ofensiva terminó en un fracaso. Un ataque alemán en Ypres se abrió con el primer uso de armas químicas en el Frente Occidental. Grandes nubes de gas de cloro ayudaron a los alemanes a apoderarse de las trincheras francesas de primera línea casi sin oposición.

En abril, el Imperio Otomano comenzó el arresto, la deportación y la ejecución de armenios étnicos, a quienes sospechaban que simpatizaban con los enemigos de Turquía. Los eventos siguen siendo controvertidos, con el gobierno turco argumentando que el número de muertes ha sido exagerado y no puede ser descrito como genocidio. La mayoría de los historiadores y muchos otros gobiernos nacionales no están de acuerdo, describiendo estos eventos como el Genocidio Armenio y colocando el número de muertos entre 1 y 1.5 millones.

En el mar, el barco de pasajeros británico RMS Lusitania fue hundido por un submarino, lo que provocó 1.198 muertes de civiles, incluidos 128 estadounidenses. El presidente Woodrow Wilson y el público estadounidense se indignaron. En respuesta a las advertencias estadounidenses, Alemania acordó suspender los ataques a los buques de pasajeros.

Un nuevo intento aliado de romper el estancamiento del Frente Occidental en la Segunda Batalla de Artois terminó con grandes pérdidas, después de los ataques fallidos en Vimy Ridge, Aubers Ridge y Festubert. En el aire, Alemania ganó superioridad aérea gracias al Fokker Eindecker, un monoplano armado con una ametralladora de tiro hacia adelante.

En junio de 1915, Italia se unió a la guerra, atacando a Austria-Hungría en la primera de muchas batallas del río Isonzo. En Gallipoli, los Aliados no lograron romper el estancamiento con nuevos aterrizajes en la Bahía de Suvla y una serie de ataques conocidos como la Batalla de Sari Bair (incluidos los ataques de ANZAC en Lone Pine y Nek).

Francia y Gran Bretaña lanzaron su Gran Ofensiva de Otoño para aliviar la presión sobre su aliado ruso. Pero los ataques franceses en la Tercera Batalla de Artois y la Segunda Batalla de Champaña, así como un ataque británico en la Batalla de Loos, llevaron a pérdidas masivas con pocas ganancias significativas.

CORRECCIÓN: el mapa muestra a Chipre como parte del Imperio Otomano. Chipre fue parte del Imperio Otomano desde 1570 a 1914, pero cuando el Imperio Otomano se unió a los Poderes Centrales en noviembre de 1914, Chipre fue anexada por Gran Bretaña.

World War I - The Great War (1914-1918)

World War I (WWI or WW1), also known as the First World War or the Great War, was a global war centered in Europe that began on 28 July 1914 and lasted until 11 November 1918. More than 9 million combatants and 7 million civilians died as a result of the war, a casualty rate exacerbated by the belligerents' technological and industrial sophistication, and tactical stalemate. It was one of the deadliest conflicts in history, paving the way for major political changes, including revolutions in many of the nations involved.

There is a slight hiccup near the beginning of the video, caused by rendering issues. World War II coming up!

WW1: Battle of the Somme 1916

German Machine Guns of World War One:


British Infantryman vs German infantryman - Somme 1916:


The Battle of the Somme has been immortalised as the greatest disaster in British military history, when 57,000 British soldiers became casualties in a single day, 1st July 1916 - part of a doomed attempt to break the deadlock of trench warfare. But behind the myths lies the story of a meticulously planned battle, fought against a determined and experienced German enemy, and a fight that was seen at the time as both unavoidable and necessary. The Battle of the Somme, of which 1st July was just the first, disastrous day, raged for another four months, and was vital not only in diverting German forces away from their crucial assault on the French at Verdun, but in teaching Britain's 'citizen army' how to fight a modern war against the German army, arguably the best in the world.
