This film covers the five war-torn years between 1914 and 1919, unfortunately at the rate of about forty-five minutes per year, with ponderous historical detail, large crowd scenes, and hundreds of period costumes. As the legends of Polish history during this time share their moments with Lloyd George, Lenin, Clemenceau, and Woodrow Wilson, the war crunches to an inevitable close against a backdrop of parliamentary debates, battle scenes, and secret meetings.
