This three-part political thriller follows the catastrophic chain of events leading up to World War I from the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand on 28 June 1914 to Britain’s declaration of war on Germany 37 days later. This tense and gripping mini-series set amongst the corridors of power in Whitehall and Berlin tracks the unfolding crisis through the eyes of leading politicians and civil servants struggling to prevent the world’s first global war. 37 Days unlocks the mystery of the war’s origins, overturning assumptions about its inevitability, demonstrating that World War One was neither a chance happening nor was it a foregone conclusion.

This is the story of Walter Tull - the first black officer to serve in the British army in the First World War, telling the story of his life, in his final moments. Having gained a reputation for himself in the army through his leadership skills, and his ability to motivate others in the most horrifying situations, he discovers that he is being put forward for officer training.

World War I Collection
Very interesting series. 37 Days was the most interesting. Partly because it was a series but mostly from the information in the DVD. Of the other three I cannot chose a favorite since the were all so very informative.. My only question was whether Walters war was a fact or a dramatization.

Excellent series!
All of these movies are fantastic, and give you real insight to the family connections, the tangled web of relationships, and how it was just about inevitable to go to war at that time. Amazingly done!
