This first installment of a video collection focusing on 20th century warfare takes a decidedly eccentric approach by using as its centerpiece a British theatrical release shot in the 1920s. This sounds quite odd, but it does make some surprising sense, as the silent film, The Battle of Ypres, was produced to resemble a World War I documentary, though it employed actors dressed in uniform. This innovative film, which was said to have been a success in Britain, was apparently never released overseas, so it will be something new to American viewers. Though shot a decade after the fact, it does tell the story of the continued action around Ypres, which was a virtual slaughterhouse and set the startlingly lethal tone for much of the rest of the war. Following the presentation of The Battle of Ypres, the video presents an eclectic mix of newsreels shot in Europe and Asia that show how the stage was being set for World War II. Some of this material is puzzling, especially as it is presented in their original languages with no translations, but the footage itself is often fascinating, and packaging this material does present an unusual look at how people around the world could see the clouds of war forming on the horizon. --Robert J. McNamara
