IamA Clyde Cremer, military historian and author of “The Life And Times Of A World I Soldier.” It’s the 100th anniversary of the start of the World War I AMA!
My name is Clyde Cremer. I have studied military history for 50 years. I find World War I facinating since the decisions in breaking up the colonies and empires of the central powers after the war has a big influence in todays news headlines. e.g. the Middle East, Balkans, Africa.
I spent 13 years researching a book on World War I titled, The Life And Times Of A World War I Soldier based on the diary and letters of a relative who was in the war. I went everywhere from where he was born to the actual spot where he died in north eastern France as well as spending time doing research in the National Archives in Washington, D.C.
It’s a complex subject but I’ll try to do my best to answer questions about the war and American involvement.
