Will Englund (5:17), who won a Pulitzer Prize as a reporter for The Baltimore Sun, is the author of a new book about the American entrance into World War I. The book, "March 1917," is being released this week. It tells the story of the end of U.S. neutrality during the bloody conflict in Europe and the collapse of the Russian empire under the czars. Also with a new book is Gene Fax (24:26), author of "With Their Bare Hands: General Pershing, the 79th Division and the Battle for Montfaucon." On today's podcast, Fax tells how the U.S. — and Baltimore, in particular — mobilized for war.
