In 2003, 85 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 managed to find
dozens, aged 101 to 113, and interview them. All are gone now. A
decade-long odyssey to recover the story of a forgotten generation and
their Great War led Rubin across the United States and France, through
archives, private collections, and battlefields, literature, propaganda,
and even music.
