A plethora of documentaries and books have been written about World War II, The Civil War, The American and French Revolution and other major military confrontations throughout history. In comparison, however, not much has been aired or written about World War I, the result of which arguably set the tone for foreign relations for over the rest of the century.
Is World War I something of a “forgotten war?” Ed Lengel, who talks with Mike Connors on the next Ask the Lawyer, discusses the importance of the Great War and how it shaped future events in Europe and around much of the world. Lengel, who is also the Chief Historian at the White House Historical Association, has written a number of books about WWI, including “Thunder and Flames: Americans in the Crucible of Combat, 1917-1918 (Modern War Studies),” his most recent.
Also, Mike welcomes Joe Boland, Vice President of Mission at Catholic Extension. His organization aids Catholics in remote areas who do not have direct access to churches, working to bring them to the faithful in such isolated locations.
