Last of the Doughboys
In 2003. eighty-five years after the armistice. it took Richard Rubin months to find just one living American veteran of World War I. But then. he found another. And another. Eventually he found dozens. aged 101 to 113. and interviewed them. All are gone now. A decade-long odyssey to recover the story of a forgotten generation and their war led Rubin across the United States and France. through archives. private collections. battlefields. literature. propaganda. and even music. But at the center of it all were the last of the last. the men and women he met: a new immigrant. drafted and sent to France. whose life was saved by a horse; a Connecticut Yankee who volunteered and fought in every major American battle; a Cajun artilleryman nearly killed by a German airplane; an eighteen-year-old Bronx girl „drafted” to work for the War Department; a machine gunner from Montana; a marine wounded at Belleau Wood; the sixteen-year-old who became America’s last World War I veteran; and many more. They were the final survivors of the millions who made up the American Expeditionary Forces. nineteenth-century men and women living in the twenty-first century. Self-reliant. humble. and stoic. they kept their stories to themselves for a lifetime. then shared them at the last possible moment so that they. and the war they won-the trauma that created our modern world-might at last be remembered. You will never forget them. The Last of the Doughboys is more than simply a war story; it is a moving meditation on character. grace. aging. and memory.

From the acclaimed author of The Dead and Those About to Die comes a sweeping narrative of six decades of combat. and an eye-opening account of the evolution of the American infantry. From the beaches of Normandy and the South Pacific Islands to the deserts of the Middle East. the American soldier has been the most indispensable-and most overlooked-factor in wartime victory. In Grunts. renowned historian John C. McManus examines ten critical battles-from Hitler’s massive assault on US soldiers at the Battle of the Bulge to counterinsurgency combat in Iraq-where the skills and courage of American troops proved the crucial difference between victory and defeat. Based on years of research and interviews with veterans. this powerful history reveals the ugly face of war in a way few books have and demonstrates the fundamental. and too often forgotten. importance of the human element in serving and protecting the nation.
