        Wartime Propaganda | The Great War

        Discover how the Committee on Public Information (CPI), led by George Creel, launched a massive publicity campaign to support the United States’ entry into World War I, in this video adapted from The Great War: AMERICAN EXPERIENCE.

This resource is a part of the AMERICAN EXPERIENCE: The Great War Collection.
