"This sparkling curiosity was inspired by Ian Fleming, who in 1962 had the intriguing idea of asking eminent British writers to comment on the deadly sins for the London Sunday Times. The result is a colletive display of wit, erudition, and common sense, as each author essays his or her assigned vice."--Cover

"November 11, 1918, marked the official end of the Great War--and the start of a peace so flawed that it guaranteed a second war of devastating proportions. This outstanding program documents the events of the war's last day, through archival footage, contemporary records, and poignant personal narratives, and traces the war's profound social and political impact on Great Britain. These accounts of death and bitter survival underscore the Pyrrhic nature of 'the war to end all wars, ' which cast a shadow of disillusionment across Europe and the entire 20th century."--Container
