REBROADCAST: The Last of the Doughboys

Nov 11, 2013

In his new book, The Last of the Doughboys, Richard Rubin reflects on the First World War through the eyes of dozens of centenarians who experienced its battles but rarely told its stories. Rubin discovers what he calls a neglected “great generation”, the overlooked and under-appreciated war they fought in, and how that conflict shaped our modern world.


  • Richard Rubin, author of The Last of the Doughboys, a conversational history of America’s experience in World War I as recalled by its last surviving veterans.

Here's a link to his website, where you can also find videos of his interviews with several veterans.
