The First World War was supposed to be the war that ended all wars, hence the name: the Great War.
The Great War was off to a bad start from the German perspective. The plan was to fend off France and Russia while focusing on the main purpose, helping Austria-Hungary deal with Serbia.
The loss of life in the Great War was immense.

So many facts, sooooo few there for me, and then I realized that this was for everyone who DIDN'T take AP European History could want...... a wonderful synopsis of the most needed facts... actually better done than my final essay!! Enjoy!!
That's a little harsh. But not of this nature - a hyper-telescoped history. Cramming WWWI into 39 minutes was either an idea of genius or of foolishness. Alas, the second.
When you are going to be reading/discussing WWI, you have to know how to pronounce Schlieffen, Moltke, Crimea.
Very likely, this idea seemed like an inspiration in an editorial conference. It wasn't.
