    Perhaps the only real museum to WW I in the States is in KC.  It is surprisingly about the entire war and shows very clearly in a number of places how minimal the US involvement in the war actually was.

    (I think it misses one point: WW I was not the first true "world war."  I think the Seven Years War, which in the States we call the French and Indian War, was also truly a world war.)

    Finally, I have written here several times that I think any newly installed major leader of the world MUST visit Verdun and think on what it means for the decisions they make in sending their soldies to war.
