PBS Documentary on the Polar Bears of WWI

A documentary on the Polar Bears of WWI will air this Sunday, November 8 at 3pm on Detroit's public television station. The "Polar Bears" were a group of Michigan WWI soldiers who fought against the Russians in frigid conditions near the arctic circle. The movie was filmed last January in Michigan's upper peninsula where frigid conditions resembled those experienced in Russia during WWI.
