Final Day of World War I One of the seldom discussed parts of the First World War was the tragic final day--November 11, 1918. The Armistice had been signed at 5:10 a.m. that day, but would not come into effect until 11 a.m. Accordingly, the fighting continued on the Western Front for nearly six more hours, essentially for no reason. Historians estimate that as many as 10,000 casualties occurred that final day. (About 3,000 were Americans.) This is the final part of a BBC documentary about the final day of the Great War. It is worth watching!

I've not seen this film by Palin. It is one those documentaries that I would like watch in its entirety. Thanks Lava, asearching shall I go.

This documentary is titled The Last Day of World War One and is part of the BBC's Timewatch series.

I've watched dozens of war documentaries. I've never seen a more horrific wound than that poor Brit's facial wound at 1:15.
