THE LAST OF THE DOUGHBOYS The Forgotten Generation and Their Forgotten World War

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Grover Gardner

History • 20.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2013

Grover Gardner provides the perfect easy-toned American voice for these personal stories of WWI. Less than a dozen years ago, author Richard Rubin went in search of the last living veterans of the Great War. He was able to track down and interview a few dozen—all between the ages 101 and 113. The result is the remarkable, candid memories of foot soldiers, nurses, ambulance drivers, and loggers. (Somebody had to cut the timber that lined the walls of the trenches at Amiens and the Somme.) These recollections, along with Rubin’s own well-researched insights, weave together an important and moving portrait of our nation in the years 1917-18, when we were just entering the world stage. Gardner’s reading is warm and clear. Most important, it reflects the author’s satisfaction at knowing that these men and women, who all simply said they were just doing their duty, will never be forgotten. A very special listening experience. B.P. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2013]
