1914 until 1945 includes several periods meshed into one and truly represents a change to the modern world. From WWI (that includes several countries internationally), the Roaring Twenties, the Great Depression, to the end of World War II in 1945, you will discover a myriad number of period dramas that reflect these huge world changes.

More than any other period, WWI onward touches on revolutions within several countries. This is also a huge time for occupations. Outside of the European and American world, our period drama reviews once again include historical dramas set in Asian countries. Keep an eye out for Chinese and Japanese period dramas set between 1914 and 1945. During this time, you will see the rise of communism and the involvement of both countries in world wars. Meanwhile, in Korea, period dramas during WWI and WWII will feature the majority of the Japanese Colonial Rule (1910 to 1945). This is, of course, barely scratching the surface. Within these timelines, the Silver Petticoat Review Archives incorporates period dramas from all over the world.

Note: As always, the content on our site has a more old-fashioned theme and focuses more on PG-13 content or below. Anything Rated R or rated TV-MA will get a content warning in the review.

Be sure to check out the other historical eras from our main page of the Period Drama Review Archives. From Ancient, Baroque, Victorian, to Georgian, there are several period dramas just waiting for you to check out!
