In collaboration with the St. Charles Public Library
American Doughboys in the First World War reviews America's participation in "the war to end all wars" as historian Robert Mueller takes listeners on a trip across the battlefields of Northern France to describe the events, people, and places of America's contribution to the defeat of the German Kaiser. Famous engagements such as Belleau Wood, Cantigny, St-Mihiel, and Meuse-Argonne are reviewed with images of what the battlefields look like today. The evening ends by relating the enormous changes that the conflict brought to warfare, society, and populations around the world.
Robert Mueller performed his military service in the U.S. Army Signal Corps during the Vietnam era. He has received 11 national book awards including Bronze Medals from the Military Writers Society of America. He holds advanced degrees in physics from the University of Illinois and in business administration from Lake Forest College.
