‘Lost Underground’ Of WWI

National Geographic, August 2014, has a great photo essay on "The Hidden World of the Great War: The Lost Underground of World War I," featuring cave sculptures and art in the tunnels that troops dug to penetrate into each other's trenches, or even to end-run under and around them.

Turner Classic Movies: Friday Films on WWI

Club Member Jeff Long writes: "I recently stumbled upon the fact that during the present month of July, Turner Classic Movies channel (TCM) is showing WW1-themed films on each Friday of the month. Each film is introduced by Ret. General Wesley Clarke, as an homage to all those who took part in the conflict.  I regret that I found this so late in the month, however I checked the programming and next Friday, July 25th they will be showing two of my favorites, namely "Random Harvest" starring Greer Garson and Ronald Colman, and "Waterloo Bridge," starring Robert Taylor and Vivien Leigh."

World War I and American Music

Book Club member Louis Nirenberg brought this to my attention. This is perfect adjunct to our current book, The Long Shadow, which we will be discussing Monday, August 4, 6:30 - 8:00 PM. See you then.
