Veterans day, celebrated in the U.S. on November 11, was once known here, as it still is in Europe, as Armistice Day. It marked the end of "The War to End All Wars"  in 1918.

Dr. S. Paul Mackenzie, a professor of History at the University of South Carolina, and expert on the Great War, talks with Dr. Edgar about the causes and the impact of the war on the countries that fought it.
