MaryAnn,

I'd like to read:

“I Am Not Dead” from Experiences of the Great War by Ashby Williams (1874-1944)

https://archive.org/details/experiencesgrea00willgoog/page/n8
pp. 131-133

Ashby Williams was a 44 year old lawyer from Virginia who led the U.S. Army’s First Battalion, 320th Infantry Division in the Muse-Argonne Campaign of the First World War. It was during this battle, the deadliest in U.S. History, that Major Williams “had perhaps the narrowest escape of [his] life.”

That would be great Winston. You are at the bottom of the MW for now, until I figure out where to slot you as I rearrange sections.

Mary Ann,
here is my recording of Walter Rathenau's text.
Thank you Ricarda. Have you given me a short summary? I don't see it, so please point me there, or post again. (English or German is fine)

Thank you Barbara!

It's exciting to see these new pieces as we come closer to Armistice Day. Now, to get caught up on PLing.

MaryAnn, I'm not offering to read any section right now, and it's a bit late for this year anyway, but I found this book which you might want to put on your list for next year's collection: http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/47856

short autobiographical descriptions of incidents in the war, related by the soldiers themselves.

Thank you Ricarda. Have you given me a short summary? I don't see it, so please point me there, or post again. (English or German is fine)
here is my summary:

The title means "Problems of Peace Economy". Address to the "Deutsche Gesellschaft 1914", held on 18 Dec. 1916. Walther Rathenau, jewish, b. 1867, was a german industrialist, author and liberal politician. After WWI, he became foreign minister of the Weimar Republic and negotiated the Treaty of Rapallo with Soviet Russia. He was assassinated in Berlin in 1922 by an anti-Semitic terrorist organization, the "Organisation Consul". In the middle of an ongoing war, he assesses and addresses Germany's economic situation and challenges for a peace economy, supporting - amongst others - progressive ideas for a redistribution of wealth.

Leni, I just had a listen to your wonderfully read section :9: Beautifully expressive, and flawless reading. And the script was so difficult to decipher :shock: You really did a great job with it. At some words I was only guessing, straining my eyes. :lol:

This section can be marked PL ok, without a doubt. Great addition to the collection. Thanks !

Thanks, Mary Ann. I found this piece quite moving, and hoped others would also find it an appropriate reflection for the end of the war. This whole 3-volume project has been a great educational experience which I've been glad to be involved in. Thank you for putting it together! :)
