Published on Oct 29, 2013

It is the end and the beginning of an age. The year is 1914. Europe is the center of commerce, industrialization, science, art and culture. It is home to great empires and glittering monarchies.

It is a golden age of European power and civilization. Many in this era feel that they are living in the most civilized, technologically advanced time in history -- and they are proud of their achievements.

So, how does this self-proclaimed, modern, civilized world crash into a war that engulfs the globe and consumes 10,000,000 lives? The Road to War will trace this descent into war.

Part 1 of 10. The Road to War is the first of ten short films that will be produced by the MacArthur Memorial and the General Douglas MacArthur Foundation to commemorate the Centennial of World War I. To find out more about the MacArthur Memorial or to access free educational resources designed to complement the films, please visit: www.macarthurmemorial.org
