Since this is not a set you will get some well done documentaries that are on target and some that are not so well or not particularly about WWI. For example the Airships documentary only has a few minutes on WWI. Most of the others are targeted better. However, that said, I would highly recommend this DVD collection to get a details and perspectives that others leave out such as the climate and political opposition to the war in the USA. Each documentary is about 45 minutes.
The 14 documentaries are titled:
Most Decorated: The Doughboys
WWI: Death of Glory
Secrets of WWI
The First Dogfighters
Red Baron and the Wings of Death
Mystery U-Boat of WWI
WWI: The Somme
Halt U-Boats in the Zeebrugge
John J. Pershing: The Iron General
Dear Home: Letters from WWI
Last Day of WWI
never forget some things and this is one of them
