This month marks the 100-year anniversary of U.S. entry into World War I. But, as the world commemorates the centennial of the war, U.S. events have been few and far between. Why is the war remembered so differently in Europe versus the United States, and what legacies might we be forgetting? In this episode of History Talk, we speak to three experts—Jennifer Siegel, Aaron Retish, and Julie Powell—about the war that shaped the course of the 20th century. Join us to learn why World War I is remembered so differently in combatant countries, what the war's most important geopolitical and human impacts were, and how its legacies continue to affect us today. Guests: Dr. Jennifer Siegel - Specialist in Modern European Diplomatic and Military History in the Department of History at The Ohio State University. Dr. Aaron Retish - Associate Professor of Russian and Soviet History at Wayne State University. Julie Powell - Ph.D. candidate in Modern European History at The Ohio State University and specialist on interwar French culture and the impact of war on personal and national identities.
