Product Description
“The true soldier fights not because he hates what is in front of him, but because he loves what is behind him." G. K. Chesterton (English author ~ 1874 - 1936)


The year 2018 marks the Centennial of the end of World War I.

Several informative films have been made about The Great War - The War To End All Wars.

Here are six of them.

They can, of course, be bought separately. Just click on the title below for complete descriptions and individual prices.


You get:

1. * The Lost Battalion

2. * Joyeux Noël Merry Christmas

3. * Influenza 1918

4. * War Horse

5. * All Quiet On The Western Front

6. * The Great War Christmas Truce


* IN ADDITION *.
You get pre- and/or post-viewing overheads with each film so

students have some background information and

can appreciate the film even more.



Having students select from multiple choice answers allows

more time for their eyes to stay on the film and not spend it

looking down writing out answers and, thus, not miss

important moments in the film.


Everything is classroom-ready to make your job easier. (54 pages)

* SPECIAL NOTE 1 *
The Navajo Code Talkers that everyone knows about in World War II were preceded by the Choctaw Code Talkers used in World War I.

Here are some links for further information ~

* Oklahoma History Center Choctaw Code Talkers
* Choctaw Code Talkers of WW I
* Tobias Frazier Choctaw Code Talker

"In October 1918, the American Forces were trying to break the strong defensive line of the Germans with no success. Every time they prepared to go "over the top" to assault the line, the Germans were prepared for them. It was apparent the enemy had tapped and decoded the American communications lines. The Germans were not able to decode the American messages given in Choctaw and the result is a glorious part of history.

The phrase "Code Talker" did not exist during World War I, and Tobias Frazier was not known to refer to himself as one. The phrase was later coined during or after World War II."

* SPECIAL NOTE 3 *
Almost forgotten by history, in World War I thousands of Chinese volunteered to help the European war effort as laborers. Many died in France, some from the Spanish flu in 1918, and are buried in the Chinese Cemetery of Nolette à Noyelles-sur-Mer near Le Havre. Some are also in Folkestone, England on the English Channel.
