Love and Death in the Great War

Love and Death in the Great War

Talks/Lectures
Americans often heard the tale of their nation’s entry into the war told as a love story. Fighting promised to stir “khaki-mad” passions in young women and bolstered romantic credibility to the doughboy. Join historian and author of Love and Death in the Great War, Andrew Huebner, as he explores this idea through Missourians Mae and Eliga Dees, suggesting a different tale of war, challenging the romantic ideals of American wartime culture. Book signing to follow lecture. FREE with RSVP | J.C. Nichols Auditorium
