Brian McCall, Instructor of History and Political Science-Interlochen Arts Academy discusses the start of WWI with Beyond the Headlines host Jack Segal. August 1914 to April 1917---the Great War before the entry of the United States in 1917. The terrible new weapons of war killed millions along the Western Front, at sea and now in the air. Places like the Somme and Verdun will make this war the deadliest in history--until the Second World War.
