Dramatizations based on primary sources
14 WAR STORIES
Experience the horror and emotion of World War I through the exact words of those who actually lived it. Riveting stories of love, loss, happiness, and grief taken from diaries, letters, postcards, and telegrams from different countries are interspersed with archival footage in 14 moving dramatizations. Stories include that of a British homemaker volunteering as a war nurse and comforting dying soldiers far from home, a blood-soaked German soldier cowering in his muddy trench before an enemy he has never seen, and a Russian teenager who disguises herself as a male soldier so that she may fight in the war.
