American neutrality erodes as Wilson declares “the world must be made safe for democracy.”

The three-part, six-hour American Experience documentary draws on the latest scholarship, including unpublished diaries, memoirs and letters. It tells the rich and complex story of World War I through the voices of nurses, journalists, aviators, and the American troops who came to be known as “doughboys.”
