“The Great War” tells the rich and complex story of World War I through the voices of nurses, journalists, aviators and the American troops who came to be known as «doughboys.» The series explores the experiences of African-American and Latino soldiers, suffragists, Native American «code talkers» and others whose participation in the war to «make the world safe for democracy» has been largely forgotten. It is a story of heroism and sacrifice that would ultimately claim 15 million lives and profoundly change the world forever.

Co-hosted by the National Park Service, this is the second installment of a three-part series. Part 3 will be shown during the Veterans’ Day schedule of events on November 11.
