The American Road to Victory
A Four Part Series for Television
Following hot on the heels of the groundbreaking American Road to Victory, a little understood period of American history is to be dramatically explained in a new four part mini series for Public Television.
President Woodrow Wilson asked Congress for A war to end all wars.
Over There, Doughboys in The Great War,
will follow young Americans in that war from April 1917 to the close of hostilities in November 1918. Names of battles like Cantigny, Belleau Woods and Saint Mihiel will be brought to life as gripping re-enactments and veteran accounts draw viewers into the action.
Livingbattlefield’s unique approach to story telling, together with on location filming, special effects, and graphic moving maps will orientate and engage viewers at a foxhole level, in the bloodiest of conflicts.
By November 1918, more than one million, five hundred thousand souls had crossed the treacherous, U-boat infested Atlantic Ocean to join the conflict. Many went to a watery grave.
No detail will be spared in dramatizing the horror; waterlogged trenches will be constructed and a liberal use of pyrotechnics will be used to convey the real look and feel of battle.
Early model tanks, like prehistoric beasts, will trundle over the scorched earth of the battlefields, while bi-planes, climbing and rolling, perform deadly dogfights in the skies above.
The valiant contribution of African and Native Americans will be explained together with details of more than 25,000 women who gave their all in support of their Doughboys.
From the actions of heroes like Sgt Alvin York, to the exploits of the dashing young Major, George S. Patton jnr, American audiences will see how great men were forged on the killing fields of Northern France.
