Abstract Many of the geopolitical hot button issues of recent decades trace their roots directly back to decisions made during the 1919 Paris peace talks. Inspired by historian Margaret MacMillan's acclaimed book Paris 1919: Six Months That Changed the World, this program dramatically blends historical reenactments with archival footage and photos to shed light on a long moment in history when the victorious combatants of the Great War - fueled by a combination of hope, opportunism, and anger - created the League of Nations, redrew the map of the modern world, and revenged themselves upon Germany via the Treaty of Versailles. A definitive documentary.
