Impossible Peace: Complete Series (DVD)
The story of the brief years of peace that existed after World War One, that were doomed to fail
The First World War was meant to be the "war to end all wars", which claimed a life every twenty-five seconds - but why did the world not learn from it?
The losses suffered should have led to a new world order, one where peace and prosperity replaced inequality, injustice and power-grabbing world leaders.
But only 20 years after that war ended, another would begin, that was louder and more lethal than ever before. How did this occur after all the death and destruction of World War One, and why did peace only last 20 years?
Two world wars dominated the 20th century, but between these two tragic times was an age that nostalgia views with optimism and enthusiasm - an era of jazz music, Charlie Chaplin, prohibition, the talkies, cinema, radio and the motor car. A time that history now sees as an age of anxiety.
Told through rare archive footage and the views of international historians, Impossible Peace is the story of the twenty years of peace that led to war.
