Summary
The Last of the Doughboys brings World War I to life in the words of those who lived it. Journalist Richard Ruben painstakingly tracked down and interviewed dozens of surviving WWI veterans (aged between 101 and 113 years old at the time of their interviews) over the course of a decade. He skillfully weaves their halting, haunting individual stories into a vividly humanized account of the world's first industrial-scale war, and America's last days as a rural economy. - Description by Kimberly S. Burton
