With the one hundredth anniversary of the beginning of the First World War coming in August of 2014, learn the facts of exactly how these wars affected human existence.

This was a git to my husband. He enjoys listening to all of Michael Medved's historical explanations on the radio program, so he really enjoyed these cd's. He has listened to them several times. Thanks.
Informative and Entertaining

Michael is a great resource for history and he makes it fun and entertaining. I trust him for his historical insights even though I don't ALWAYS agree with him on politics. Well worth the money. I've listened to this several times and will probably do so again.
Medved History of World War One Gets Four Stars
Posted by Fr. Dale in Cincinnati on 22nd Oct 2013
Michael Medved's History CD of World War One lacks only a bibliography and footnotes to make it a full-fledged history narration. But meanwhile it is a riveting yarn that is all too soon ended. Most people today know little about what happened in 1917-18, so Medved's history includes information about Woodrow Wilson, his hopes and personal flaws that doom his attempt to bring the countries of the world into a League of Nations. Few if any special weapons, battles or tactics are described. The war's aftermath is given special attention. And with good reason: the story has overtones that are valid in today's world.

The World War I presentation was outstanding. After hearing it on-air recently, I purchased it together with the WW II discs. I'm a proud owner of the complete Medved history library, and always add new releases when available.
