WWI Crusaders — available in August 2018 — This is the first book for general readers that tells in one complete volume the interlacing stories of German brutality, Belgian resistance, and the American humanitarian crusaders of the CRB. The book covers from August 1914, when the war began, to May 1917, when the last U.S. delegates left Belgium because of America’s April entry into the war. The events of a century past come alive in real time as WWI Crusaders follows the lives of a handful of young CRB delegates, two U.S. diplomats, a 22-year-old Belgian woman, and those responsible for producing an underground newspaper. A substantial epilogue wraps up all major stories and people through the end of the war and beyond.
Behind the Lines — published in 2014 — This award-winning book details the war’s chaotic first five months (August-December 1914), the founding of the CRB and the CN, and the initial civilian resistance to the harsh German rule.
