I'd like to think TE Lawrence would make a good guest for dinner with 4 other historical people from that other thread, but in reality the guy sounded - and I am being gracious - difficult at times.
You might like this for WW1. You won't get a better spoken narrative.
Hardcore History 50-55 – Blueprint for Armageddon Series
Barbara Tuchman also wrote Stilwell and the American Experience in China, 1911–45 and The Zimmermann Telegram
I enjoyed both.
This is not likely to be for everyone's taste. It is a fictionalized historical film about the Battle of Vienna, which stopped the Ottoman effort to conquer Europe, thereby preserving Christendom. It has religious themes involving a Capuchin friar, Marco d'Aviano, whom some believed God worked miracles through. Also, some may not like it's possible implications for current events.
It's not a high budget movie, but it does stream free on Tubi.
I just finished binge watching this series. It was really silly and fun to watch. I wish there were more than just the one season. All 9 episodes are available to watch on youtube for free.
Wow this looks promising...Comes out July 30th...
Yes and I watched it twice, but what is it about? lol It does look interesting but I didn't understand anything that was going on in the clip.
What's the story about?
A fantasy adventure based on the Arthurian legend, The Green Knight tells the story of Sir Gawain (Dev Patel), King Arthur's headstrong nephew, who embarks on a quest to confront the eponymous Knight, a gigantic tree-like creature.
Thank you. Isn't that what he did in the clip already, he cut it's head off?
Well, I finished Lawrence of Arabia. It was good, and informed me about the Arab Revolt, but it didn't really seem like WWI, as I usually associate that with trench warfare. Since I'm now up to The Battle of Verdun in another WWI audiobook, A World Undone: The Story of the Great War, 1914 to 1918 by G.J. Meyer, I started watching a documentary about it. It comes in two parts. [Warning: full frontal male nudity out of the gate.]
It says it's age restricted. You have to go to youtube to watch it.
