In 1917, the American Expeditionary Forces (AEF) arrived in Europe to fight alongside the French and British allied forces. American journalist Heywood Broun followed the AEF and reported on their experiences. He published these sketches in book form in 1918. This project is part of the ongoing commemoration by LibriVox volunteers of the centenary of World War I. (Summary by MaryAnn) (5 hr 18 min)

Great book.

(5 Sterne)

Very well written and read by multiple readers. All good except one that sounded like he was reading into a tin can. Highly recommend.
