About the Show
During a cold November weekend in 1918, the fate of Europe lay in the hands of a few men who represented the superpowers of the day. This is the story of their extraordinary negotiations, which would end four years of devastating conflict. The culmination of those seminal discussions - a single piece of paper signed in a railway carriage in a forest north of Paris. This documentary explores the fascinating truth behind these fateful negotiations, and reveals the role that the agreement to end one war played in starting the next.
