About this product
- DescriptionIn the early days of World War I, a secret film campaign was brought to the United States. In an effort to control public opinion in this important neutral country, German officials set up the American Correspondent Film Company. As a front man for this covert operation, photographer Albert K. Dawson was sent to Berlin. Dawson's camera covered the troops all the way from Flanders' mud to the gates of Przemysl, Poland. Based on many years of research, the authors have uncovered Dawson's fascinating life and work as a war photographer, as well as his films and the way his pictures were used by the German government for foreign propaganda. The story on Dawson allows us the unique opportunity to follow an American cameraman into the trenches of Armageddon - the Great War.
