Abstract:

From the Archduke Franz Ferdinand in Sarajevo to the delegates signing the Versailles Treaty, this program covers the events that set off the war and the war itself: the German invasion of Belgium; the Battle of the Marne, of Ypres, Verdun, the Somme, Gallipoli; the naval Battle of Jutland, the sinking of the Blucher, and the German U-boat campaign; airplanes, Zeppelins, and the newly-invented tank; the U.S. entry into the war; the last massive German attack and the Allied counter-attack, while Germany's allies were crumbling; and the most immediate effects of the war: the downfall of Kaiser Wilhelm of Germany, Kaiser Franz-Josef of Austria, and Tsar Nicholas of Russia; the Russian Revolution and the birth of the Soviet State; and the Treaty of Versailles, which was intended to end the bloodiest war of all time but succeeded instead in starting a bloodier one yet.
