No one Would Have Believed

..at the end of the first decade of the 20th century that the war that would soon engulf the world was even possible. With infinite complacency men went to and fro over this globe about their little affairs, serene in their assurance of their empire over matter. Then, not halfway through the second decade of the 20th century, came the great disillusionment.

Here is some recently restored film footage of that terrible, perilous time.

1 This footage is from a BBC production called "The Great Martian War" that I found to be nigh-on brilliant.  It was on BBCAmerica a month or two ago, and I watched it in one sitting, it got me so hard.

Here's a promo for it.
