Militärhistorisches Museum der Bundeswehr, Dresden

One hundred years ago the First World War set the course for the twentieth century; for the countries that took part nothing would be the same again. In this British Council and BBC World Service series we look at the impact of the war from around the world.

This was the first modern war, a war in which traditional battle plans yielded to modern weaponry. Ingenious and innovative, the military on all sides developed new industrial devices for destruction.


German historians Dr Annika Mombauer and Dr Sönke Neitzel discuss Methods and Morality with BBC broadcaster and historian Professor Amanda Vickery. Eminent photo journalist,Herlinde Koelbl, brings her unique vision of modern military 'Targets'.

A radio recording of The War that Changed the World: Methods and Morality will be broadcast across the world by the BBC World Service.

This special debate is a highlight of Dresden's Sommernacht.
