Outstanding DVD
Denise R. Norberg | Chicago | 08/03/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Having seen the WWI Memorial, and met the Congresswoman who championed the idea, as well as one of the creators of the DVD, I was able to hear firsthand how the project was created and built. As a member of the construction industry for twenty years, I appreciated the intersplicing of construction segments with interviews and journalistic footage from the war era. This is one of the finest documentaries I've ever seen, in terms of explaining the symbolism of the project as well as its context. It would be especially useful in demonstrating, to those who did not live through it, what WWI was all about.

"this video was rated excellent by a WWII vet who was unable to visit the memorial. Provided a great tribute to those who served."
