Review by Library Journal Review
NPR compiled this wonderful assortment of World War I stories to mark the 100th anniversary of "The War To End All Wars." Included are firsthand accounts from veterans, author talks with noted war historians, poetry, broadcasts from that era, and stories of many often overlooked events and battles. Covering from the last of the doughboys to the Christmas Truce of 1914, this compilation is a must for fans of military history. Not only does it shed light on the first World War, but it sets the stage for the factors and scenarios that triggered World War II as well. Fans of American and cultural history will also enjoy the commentary and stories on a wide variety of topics from the "Bonus Army" to Armistice Day and the Great Depression. Verdict Hosted by Rachel Martin, this NPR collection is essential for both military buffs and novices, with something for everyone.-Erin Cataldi, Johnson Cty. P.L., Franklin, IN (c) Copyright 2014.
