Good documentary. Nothing too special. Title is a bit misleading. “America and the Great War” made me think this show would be about American involvement. But it is like most documentaries and starts with the assassination, moving through the history of the war until the US enters at the end.
One of the extras had a map of Europe at the beginning of the war & showed how it had changed at the end of the war. I hadn’t seen one of these docs with that particular emphasis.
