The bloodiest battle in U.S. military history unfolded during 47 days in 1918. More than 26,000 were killed and nearly 100,000 were wounded in an almost forgotten chapter of World War 1 that included Private Gustave Amm of the Illinois 33rd "Golden Cross" Division.
100 years later, his grandson Roger Amm embarks on a global journey of discovery to learn about the grandfather he barely knew, and those who served on both sides of the conflict.
Kanestar Productions presents the award-winning, landmark, five-part documentary series "A Golden Cross to Bear: A Story of the 33rd Division in World War 1" produced in partnership with WTVP-TV, the PBS station serving Central Illinois, and the United States World War 1 Centennial Commission.
