We’re back. Dr. Ed Lengel, author of “To Conquer Hell,” is going to talk on the 28th Division at Apremont with the title “This Is What Gives Men Grit.” The memoir “Toward the Flame” is about the 28th Division on the Aisne-Marne, so I’ve been especially excited about this talk.
“There are lots of little battles in the Meuse-Argonne. If you walk a little ways into the woods, you’ll fall into a German trench,” Lengel says. “We think of it as a big, overwheling battle, but it really was a lot of little battles.”
This is going to be a lot of tactics, so I’ll just listen and tell you about it after,
