American Experience

The Great War: Culture Change

Clip: Season 29 Episode 8 | 30s

The Great War tells the rich and complex story of WWI 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.
