OVER THERE The United States in the Great War, 1917-1918

by | Read by John Richmond

History • 13.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1999

John Richmond has an excellent BBC voice. His reading of this excellent history is both refined and passionate. America was drawn reluctantly into the Great War. We came late, and yet our involvement was crucial, and the effort transformative. We didn't win the war for England and France, but without us it would have been lost. This history is definitive and studded with choice facts. Did you know, for instance, that it was the wartime need for steel that finally led American women to give up their metal stays? Enough steel was saved to build two battleships. Anti-German feeling ran so high that hamburgers were called "salisbury steak," and German measles "liberty measles."
