Children's Crusade Revisited: Slaughterhouse-Five

Episode 1 of 1

THE CHILDREN'S CRUSADE REVISITED: SLAUGHTERHOUSE-FIVE AT 50 explores the impact of Kurt Vonnegut's 1969 anti-war novel Slaughterhouse-Five on American literature and culture. A veteran of World War II, Vonnegut based his classic novel in part on his traumatic experience as a young prisoner of war during the Allied firebombing of Dresden in Feb. 1945. A joint production of WFYI and journalism students at Franklin College, the documentary provides an intimate look at the talented but troubled author.
