American Doughboys in the First World War reviews America’s participation in “the war to end all wars” as we take 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. We end by relating the enormous changes that the conflict brought to warfare, society, and populations around the world.Map
Robert Mueller caught the battlefield bug when, as a child, he visited Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. Retirement brought him the opportunity to visit and study the battlefields of Europe.
He has written three visitor guides to the battlefields of Northern Europe under the Fields of War imprint which have garnered eleven national book awards including being honored by the Military Writers Society of America. His descriptive format and engaging writing style bring the history, significance, and people of the battlefield to life. Mr Mueller has also written comprehensive articles for WW II History Magazine and WW II Quarterly.
Robert Mueller holds advanced degrees in physics from the University of Illinois and in business administration from Lake Forest College. He performed his military service in the US Army Signal Corps during the Vietnam era. Mr Mueller is a member of the Midwest Writers Association, the Chicago Writers Association, and the Military Writers Society of America.
