This podcast - the 70th in the CONVERSATIONS series and second of three programs recorded in London entitled CONVERSATIONS on High Street - is a fascinating look back 100 years to the end of World War I and the events that followed with author and historian, Neil Hanson.
In his book, UNKNOWN SOLDIERS: The Story of the Missing of the First World War (Knopf 2005), Hanson recounts the life and combat history of three soldiers – an American from Chicago, George Seibold, an Englishman, Alec Reader, and a German, Paul Hub – representing the over 3 million who fought and died on all sides whose remains have never been accounted for.
As the Nation and the world honors our military servicemen and servicewomen with Veterans Day and Remembrance Day ceremonies, Neil Hanson’s brilliant work reminds us that we must never forget the service and sacrifice of the brave individuals living and dead in the quest for freedom and democracy.
