THE FOURTH HORSEMAN One Man's Mission to Wage the Great War in America

by | Read by Norman Dietz

History • 15 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

Robert Koenig has pieced together an elaborate history of the first attempt at germ warfare undertaken in the U.S. Anton Dilger, a German-American born in rural Virginia, obtained his medical degree in Germany. Dilger applied his scientific knowledge against the Allies in WWI, attempting to infect horses bound for Europe with anthrax and glanders germs. Koenig's exhaustive research paints a picture of the political climate of the times and shows how the Great War affected the German-American community. Norman Dietz narrates Koenig's history with authority, relishing the twists and turns presented. In the few places where Koenig's account gets repetitive or bogged down in details, Dietz keeps the pace moving with subtle energy.
