This three-part interactive program discusses America's preparations for entry into World War I in 1918. Historic footage shows "doughboys" training and leaving for Europe, the home-front efforts to equip the army and navy, women in the work force, and Liberty bonds being sold. Also covers John J. Pershing's career, and Billy Mitchell's controversial impact on America's military. Viewers are encouraged to take the pretests and check their answers.
