#USWW100 - The Toll of War, 1917

Centennial Countdown Video

Produced in 2017, this short video series explored the events that led the U.S. to enter World War I a century before, in 1917.

Prior to America's entry into WWI, the combatant nations suffered huge casualties, disrupted their economies, and expanded their arms production far beyond what anyone thought possible. As the destruction mounted, the conflict became a war of exhaustion.
