This documentary doesn't deal with World War I. Instead, it covers what it was like to be a soldier in World Wat I. It talks about what they wore, what they ate, what it was like in the trenches, how they did their jobs. Where the nicknames such as Tommys, Huns & Doughboys came from. I thought it was fascinating. However, the silly comments & captions contained in the show were offensive to me. I just didn't appreciate the overall tone of the show. I still recommend it due to the great information it contains.
