WWI Living History Project

Tuesday, November 11 at 7:00 p.m.
Hosted by Walter Cronkite

In 2006, the original 4.5 million doughboys of World War One had shrunk to a mere handful of veterans, aged 105 to 113.  The World War I Living History Project was the only media project to recognize the legacy and contributions of this passing generation of soldiers. The producers traveled the country, interviewing the last 10 soldiers of the “war to end all wars.”  The award-winning program was hosted by veteran CBS anchor Walter Cronkite and was the subject of a CNN feature.
