Synopsis by Sean Hurley
From the BBC and Time Life, the Europe the Mighty Continent series explores the immense changes that have taken place on the European continent over the last century. This rich history is given voice by Peter Ustinov and historian John Terrine. In Results of War: Making A Good Peace, the aftermath of WWI is examined. Experts detail the challenges faced by the European nations whose populations and material resources were decimated. Facing those same challenges -- and the additional difficulty of a civil war -- was Russia, whose transition from monarchy to communist collective was often bloody and chaotic.
