On November 11, 1921, the Unknown Soldier was laid to rest at Arlington National Cemetery, the elaborate ceremony attended by U.S. presidents, Allied generals, servicemen, Gold Star mothers, and thousands of everyday Americans. Carrying the fallen hero to his final resting place were his eight Body Bearers, highly decorated veterans of the Great War hand-selected by General John Pershing based on their exemplary service records and extraordinary valor in the darkest days of the war. Part biography, part American history lesson, The Unknowns frames the Body Bearers' incredible individual stories against the backdrop of the war that changed the course of modern history and helped shape the current U.S. military establishment. Immersive—and at times harrowing—it is a moving tribute to American sacrifice and heroism. (KG)
