Rate this:
Part two of this miniseries shows Woodrow Wilson attempting to preserve neutrality, then leading America into World War I. It explores his psychology and religious and moral outlook, and why he felt the need for a grand vision to justify the immense sacrifices in a terrible war. It shows how Wilson was brought down by his uncompromising sense of righteous calling and health problems culminating in an incapacitating stroke, and was unable to transform the world as he hoped. It details his courtship of Edith, beginning after his first wife's death as the war in Europe began, and demonstrates her role in his life and the Constitutional crisis that emerged as Wilson became incapacitated and she assumed control and orchestrated a cover-up.
