In the second film of his series on the Great War's impact, historian David Reynolds looks at how the conflict gave birth to an age of turbulent mass democracy. In the immediate aftermath of war, monarchies toppled, the people rose up, and three iconic leaders-Vladimir Lenin, Woodrow Wilson and Benito Mussolini-emerged with competing visions of power that polarized much of continental Europe in the 1920s and 1930s. In Britain, the socialist Labor Party was absorbed into the political mainstream and the monarchy was repackaged as a symbol of the nation. Stanley Baldwin and Ramsay MacDonald reached for the center ground and squeezed out extremists like Oswald Mosley and charismatic politicians like Winston Churchill. Filmed at locations in Italy, France, and Britain, this documentary re-examines the explosive impact of World War I on European politics.
