World War I - American Legacy video When I taught college-prep English, I would sometimes assign the novel, All Quiet on the Western Front. World War I - American Legacy film I wish this DVD had been available to me then. World War I - American Legacy review Better than any other single resource that I have found, this documentary describes vividly the horrid realities of trench warfare, as well as the deadly impact of the innovations in weapons technology employed during WWI. World War I - American Legacy DVD for sale It makes clear the profound social ramifications of this war to America, as well as its influence on the arts in the US. World War I - American Legacy movie Brian Connelly's script is comprehensive in its detail, efficiently packing an enormous amount of information into a flowing and highly literate narrative. World War I - American Legacy video I do question director Mark Bussler's decision to use Charles Gounod's "Ave Maria" as background music for pictures of dead horses... but I will assume that the decision was made naively, and not as an intentional affront to religious sensitivities. I enthusiastically recommend this DVD not only to teachers, but to anyone with a passionate interest in history.

World War I - American Legacy DVD Features
THE GREAT WAR THAT CHANGED AMERICA
WORLD WAR I: AMERICAN LEGACY vividly shows many forgotten stories of the men and women who served in the Great War, reminding Americans of their impact on our country that can still be felt today.
Writers like E. E. Cummings, Ernest Hemingway, Joyce Kilmer, and Alan Seeger turned tragedy into literary masterpieces. African-American soldiers like James Reese Europe and the Harlem Hell Fighters made history. Female volunteers like the Hello Girls and Red Cross nurses risked their lives supporting the troops and started a new era for women.
Individuals like Charles Whittlesey of the Lost Battalion and Father Duffy of the Fighting 69th became famous for surviving against impossible odds. Pilots like Victor Chapman and Quentin Roosevelt and ambulance drivers like Richard Hall made the supreme sacrifice. Monuments and dedications to World War I veterans surround Americans today as a tribute to their service and sacrifice.
From the summer of 1914 to November 1918, the Great War cost over 14 million lives, devastated millions of acres of land, and destroyed countless architectural landmarks. The war also led to important developments in literature, technology, music, and social equality that have shaped the culture of 21st-century America.
Filmed in high-definition and full of period music, photographs, and monuments, WORLD WAR I: AMERICAN LEGACY includes rare images that have never been
seen before on DVD, bringing the extreme detail of the Great War to the screen.
