The Manual - Epictetus - A Short Summary and Review

The Doughboys: America and the First World War - Gary Mead - A Short Summary & Review


A short summary of The Doughboys:

The reasons behind America's entry into WWI and the story of the soldiers who fought.

My favorite quote about WWI:

" We came Amercian. We shall remain American and go into battle with Old Glory over our heads. I will not parcel out American boys."

General John J. Pershing

Questions to ponder while reading The Doughboys:

Did you realize the logistical problems that occur during war?

Did you know we had soldiers' in Siberia during the Russian Revolution?

My review of the book:

The detailed history behind America's role in WWI.

It brought surprising facts to light.

Engaging to read and well planned out.
