Topic: Ernest Hemingway: A Typical Doughboy in World War I?
Presenter: Dr. Jennifer Keene, Professor and Chair of the History Department at Chapman University

Ernest Hemingway served in the Italian Red Cross, while the overwhelming majority of Americans served in the army in France. This lecture reinterprets Hemingway’s “atypical” wartime service as “typical,” revealing how closely his experiences mirrored those of millions of American men.
