Kids say: Not yet rated

What makes this docu particularly interesting is what it tells us about the way the U.S. transformed politically, economically, and socially before, during, and after it entered the war effort. It also addresses how ill-prepared soldiers were for the mechanized fighting that was taking place abroad, and honors the over 100K men who died during the 19 months of battle. America's World War I Centennial manages to pack a lot of general information into 20 minutes. But if you're a history buff, it will probably leave you wanting to know much, much more.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
