Movie Details

Germany unleashed numerous acts of sabotage and practiced widespread espionage in its attempts to win World War I. This program takes a look at many of these activities, including: Germany's attempts to undermine the authority of the British Empire by becoming involved with Irish independence groups; its efforts to help Mexico win control over Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona; and Germany's unconscionable decision to engage in biological warfare in several parts of the world. German spies also worked diligently within America to instigate political unrest. Historical experts including France's Jean Pierre Verney, England's Mark Seaman, and Ireland's Diarmaid Ferriter, share their thoughts about Germany's activities during World War I. This program is narrated by actor Charlton Heston and includes footage shot in America, Ireland, and France. ~ Elizabeth Smith, Rovi
