A Book to Read and Love: The Doughboys: America and the First World War - Gary Mead

 

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 thoughts about the book:

The detailed history behind American's role in WWI.

It brought surprising facts to light.

Engaging to read and well planned out.
