In partnership with The HISTORY® Channel

"The Great War" tells the story of America’s entry into World War I and the challenges faced by both America’s military leadership and ordinary soldiers throughout the war. It provides opportunities for students to explore the military strategy, technological advances, social forces, and geopolitics that impacted the war and to see the war through the eyes of individual soldiers like Henry Johnson, Horace Pippin, and Michael B. Ellis. We encourage educators to use this guide as a resource and to develop their own lesson plans and activities to best suit their students and their specific educational needs and benchmarks.
