The Great War
Part 1
Season 1  |  Episode 1  |  The History Channel  |  April 22, 2019

This epic series explores how World War I changed America and the world. Drawing on the latest scholarship, including unpublished diaries, memoirs and letters, this series tells the rich and complex story of the conflict through the voices of nurses, journalists, aviators and the American troops who came to be known as 'dough boys'. The series explores the costs and challenges of bringing America into World War I and the ways the war transformed every aspect of American life through the experiences of African-American and Latino soldiers, suffragists, Native American 'code talkers', and others whose participation has been largely forgotten.
