Project SummaryThis project consists of interviews about the experience of veterans of the First World War. World War I was fought from 1914-1918, with the United States joining in 1917. The topics covered in these interviews include life in the trenches, vermin, and dealing with the constant threat of poison gas attacks. Interviewees discuss their training and the experience of crossing the Atlantic Ocean by boat to get to Europe and back to the United States. They discuss their varied battlefield experiences in France, as well as their lives after the war.
