Date: October 26, 2021

Time: 7pm-8:30pm Eastern

All Events | Greatest Generation Live

Join us for a conversation historian Paul Dickson, author of The Rise of the G.I. Army, 1940-1941: The Forgotten Story of How America Forged a Powerful Army Before Pearl Harbor and the forthcoming GI Jive, about the slang of World War II. The U.S. Army stood at fewer than 200,000 men when Hitler invaded Poland in 1939. Soon, it would be on the move across the globe fighting a two-front war to victory. Paul Dickson’s new book traces the extraordinary transformation of America’s military from a disparate collection of camps with dilapidated equipment into a well-trained and spirited army ten times its prior size in little more than eighteen months. He narrates America’s urgent mobilization against a backdrop of political and cultural isolationist resistance and racial tension at home, and the increasingly perceived threat of attack from both Germany and Japan. Glenn Flickinger will moderate this interview and discussion.
