Details

Episode description: Told in the haunting words of the young soldiers themselves, U.S. President Woodrow Wilson is forced to select 5,500 American soldiers, including Kentuckian Simon Davis, to fight an unknown enemy called "Bolsheviks" (early Communists). Stripped of everything American and placed under British command, they find themselves quartered in a frozen hell, fighting in sixty-degree below-zero weather not knowing that WWI ended just sixty days after they arrived. These soldiers became known as The Polar Bears. [cc]
