Produced by the U.S. Army Signal Corps in 1918, this manipulative slice of propaganda purports to document the efforts of the American Expeditionary Forces serving under General John J. Pershing in World War I. With the requisite battle footage, the film also covers the front line conditions in the latter days of the war.
