For individual soldiers, it emerged as "shell shock," a personal withdrawal from an intolerable reality. For armies, it was outright rebellion; half the French army mutinied in 1917, refusing to undertake senseless attacks. The question is not why there was mutiny--but why did it take so long to erupt?

And the greatest mutiny of all was the Russian Revolution--an uprising that reverberates to this day. (Closed-Captioned)
