Summary
In this program, Simon Schama reveals how Americans really feel about war. Founding Fathers Thomas Jefferson and Alexander Hamilton disagreed about whether America should even have a professional army - a division still evident when Schama visits the country's premier military academy at West Point. From the Civil War to Mark Twain's denunciation of Teddy Roosevelt's adventure in the Philippines, American wars have inspired profound debate. As with the great war elections of the past, the 2008 presidential election is forcing America to dig deep and rediscover what it truly stands for
