At the end of the 1950s, Britain was transforming. The country was on the edge of a social revolution. But the Queen was criticised for being stuck in the past, and seen as remote and inaccessible. To remain relevant, she embraced modern technology and gave her first-ever televised Christmas broadcast, during which she awkwardly battled to overcome her natural reserve. Abroad, she was much more successful in adapting to the changing times. She encouraged the former colonies of the British Empire to form a diverse and forward-looking association of nations. Her royal visit to Ghana in 1961, in the face of the British government's resistance, showed the Queen to be a progressive, defiant and courageous leader of the new Commonwealth.

The Atlantic became a killing field as German submarines took on the might of the dominant British Navy during World War I. The stealth and silent killers were able to sink 5200 ships by war's end, and nearly brought Britain to its knees. But in their frenzy of attacks, the Germans sink the US passenger liner Lusitania, killing nearly 2000 on board. American outrage helped President Wilson get Congress to finally agree to enter the war. In the end, the Allied Atlantic blockade forces Germany to surrender, but the submarine was established as an effective military weapon.

While most people think the Blitz originated in World War II, the truth is that the first Blitz happened during World War I. Bombs were delivered from giant airships designed by Count Ferdinand von Zeppelin, who got his inspiration when he was a Germany Army observer in the US during the Civil War and rode in a hot air balloon for the first time. These lighter than air superstructures, two times longer than the Statue of Liberty is high, measured their flights in hundreds of miles when pioneering aviators measured their success in hundreds of yards.

In World War I the Germans, ignoring international treaties they signed, were first to weaponise a chemical. In this case it was chlorine - a highly toxic ingredient used in the manufacture of chemical dyes of which they had a huge supply. Their action unleashed an escalation of poison gas weapons as both sides developed different chemicals and more effective counter measures. Their use of culminated in a bold British plan that unfolded beneath the battlefield at Messine Ridge. British mining and explosive experts planted 450 tonns of high explosive hidden in a network of tunnels under Messine ridge. When ignited, they created the biggest land mine in history - killing 10,000 German soldiers. The explosion rattled windows at 10 Downing Street, 140 miles away and registered as an earthquake in Switzerland.

In World War I, tanks were the first armoured fighting machine to be used on the battlefield. These "land ships", as they were first called, were championed by Head of the British Admiralty Winston Churchill. Adapted from an American tractor with caterpillar tracks, the machine was designed in secrecy to break through the heavily fortified trenches and offer protection for troops that were being mowed down by heavy artillery. Though a massive failure in their first combat in the Battle of the Somme- they broke down and got stuck in the mud-British government propaganda reversed the story and paved the way for thousands of tanks to be built and become a decisive weapon in the war.

Breaking a Monster begins as the three members of band Unlocking the Truth are all in seventh grade, spending their weekends playing a blend of heavy metal and speed punk in Times Square, often drawing substantial crowds. They take on a manager: a 70-year-old industry veteran. With his guidance they are soon on their way to a $1.8 million record deal and a precarious initiation into the music industry. Anything feels possible, and in some moments the band can almost feel the eyes of the world gazing upon them. The boys are coming of age, not only as they make the leap to being professional musicians, but also as they transcend childhood and take their first steps into the complexities of adulthood. The accelerated breakout of any band, let alone one of pre-teens, is an extremely narrow and specific period in time, Breaking a Monster is the story of this rapid transformation.
