Chicago actor RJ Lindsey portrays Gen. Charles Gates Dawes, the Chicago banker and businessman who served as Chief Purchasing Agent for the American forces in WWI France.  Dawes narrates a slide program detailing the politics and alliances that exploded into WWI led by the cousins Czar Nicholas, Kaiser Wilhelm, and King George. With animated maps the general describes the major battles of the Western and Eastern fronts and shares stories of those who fought in WWI and would return for WWII:  Rommel, Montgomery, Patton, Churchill, MacArthur. Dawes also speaks of American challenges and victories at Cantigny, Chateau Thierry, Belleau Wood and St. Miheil.
