    One thought on “Over There”

    1. Over There begins in 1917 and focuses on the US involvement in The Great War (WWI). Americans debate and Woodrow Wilson waffles over whether to send troops to Europe. Polly Warden is the privileged daughter of a wealthy New Yorker who wants more than marriage and babies, and she decides to head to Europe with a few other privileged chums from Wellesley to do whatever good it is that they can do. Turns out it's not much outside of dishing out coffee and donuts, but Polly does get herself into a n [...]

    2. Here is a novel of epic scope that offers --- through a cast of rich and emotionally complex characters, both historical and fictional --- one of the best encapsulations of the American experience in France during the First World War.

    3. Just finished reading this book for the second time. I don't know what it is about it that draws me back: history, love lost and found, bravery and war. I can't explain it, but definitely one of my favorites.

    4. Very good book about World War I. The best kind of historical novel, the history is good and tells you things you didn't know. The story is romantic, but not unbelievable.

    5. The individual conversations seemed a bit pretentious, but overall this was a very good book. It made WWI come alive and clearly illustrated the problems that come along with mixing politics and war. It also shows the strength of the pacifist movement of the early 1900s.
