Beginning with a comparison of today's map of Europe with that of 1914, this production shows how the old empires chose sides against each other. Dramatizes the four major fighting fronts, and how more and more nations joined the fray, eventually pulling America into the first worldwide conflict. Also, shows how the new world map at the war's end did not solve the problems, but created the seeds of World War II.
Really GREAT synopsis of the beginning of WWI.
Great maps in action!
This Talking Map helps students grasp the extent of WWI.
Good information, but the video is too short.
