The Great War is a PBS three-part documentary series chronicling in fully re-mastered, HD, colorized footage, the events that led to World War I and the titanic, attritional battles that resulted, all from the perspective of the United States, which rose from a relatively small and isolated, frontier-minded country, to a formidable world power. From the assassination of Austro-Hungarian heir to the throne, Archduke Franz Ferdinand, which sparked the imperialistic ambitions of Germany and other nations, to the heroic, yet tragic Battle of the Somme, French defense of Verdun, and the horrific conditions of fighting in the Ypres salient, The Great War details all with restored, never-before-seen footage.
