A major BBC series based on the prize-winning book 'The Long Shadow'. Historian David Reynolds explores the enduring impact of 'The Great War' on our world and the shadow it has cast over Europe since the last shots were finally fired. Travelling to locations across Europe - from Slovenia to the Sudetenland, Belfast to Berlin - David Reynolds examines everything that World War I left in its wake, illuminating how the conflict unleashed forces we still grapple with today. This remarkable series also chronicles how the experience of war haunted the generation who lived through it, and the soldiers who survived it - dynamic characters such as Benito Mussolini, Eamon de Valera, Philippe Petain, James Ramsay MacDonald and Tomas Masaryk. Drawing on years of research and a wealth of historical footage, 'Long Shadow' provides a fresh, captivating and - at times - terrifying look at 'The Great War' and its lasting legacy.
