BBC - Armistice

Professor David Reynolds takes a fresh look at the events and personalities that brought about the armistice of 1918, venturing beyond the familiar British account of Remembrance Day to unravel how the Germans plunged to total defeat in just a few months at the end of the war. He uncovers a story of wounded egos, mental illness and political brinkmanship as statesmen and generals haggled over the terms of peace, while, at the front, the soldiers fought on with sustained brutality.
