The United States, while a late entrant into World War I, began to contribute to the Allied war effort in 1916 and 1917 with volunteers who wanted to fight the German forces as combat aviators. These first "American Eagles," initially joined up with the French Armié de Aire's famous Lafayette Escadrille, but soon began to join the fledgling Royal Flying Corps/ Royal Air Force (RAF). By the time of America's entry into the "Great War," a sizable force of Americans were already flying, fighting, and dying over the trenches of France and the low countries. There they helped hold the line until 1918, when American flying units began to reach the front. Throughout 1918, these Americans helped hold the line against the great German "Michael" Offensive, and later that summer helped the Allies take the offensive along the entire Western front, leading to the victory of November 1918.
To learn more about these very first American combat aviators, join military historian, author and journalist John D. Gresham (@greshamj01) for Military Monday (#MilitaryMonday on the Writestream Radio Network (@Writestream) at 1 p.m. Eastern. His guest this week will be renowned Zenith Press (@Zenith_Press) author and historian Gavin Mortimer (@gavinmortimer7). The writer of a number of military history books, Mr. Mortimer is the author of THE FIRST EAGLES, a gripping chronicle of those early volunteer American aviators who served on the Western front in 1917 and 1918. Listeners are encouraged to call in with questions and opinions for Mr. Mortimer, which should make for a lively hour of classic aviation history as America begins its run up to remembering the Great War.

Welcome Dorie Greenspan! Inducted into the James Beard Foundation Who’s Who of Food and Beverage, DORIE GREENSPAN was tapped by Julia Child to write Baking with Julia. She coauthored Desserts by Pierre Hermé, which won an IACP award. Her Around My French Table was an IACP Cookbook of the Year, and Baking: From My Home to Yours won a James Beard Award.
Baking Chez Moi: Recipes from My Paris Home to Your Home Anywhere by Dorie Greenspan With her groundbreaking bestseller Around My French Table, Dorie Greenspan changed the way we view French food. Now, in Baking Chez Moi, she explores the fascinating world of French desserts, bringing together a charmingly uncomplicated mix of contemporary recipes, including original creations based on traditional and regional specialties and drawing on seasonal ingredients, market visits, and her travels throughout the country.
Like the surprisingly easy chocolate loaf cake speckled with cubes of dark chocolate that have been melted, salted, and frozen, which she adapted from a French chef’s recipe, or the boozy, slow-roasted pineapple, a five-ingredient cinch that she got from her hairdresser, these recipes show the French knack for elegant simplicity. In fact, many are so radically easy that they defy our preconceptions: crackle-topped cream puffs, which are all the rage in Paris; custardy apple squares from Normandy; and an unbaked confection of corn flakes, dried cherries, almonds, and coconut that nearly every French woman knows.
Whether it’s classic lemon-glazed madeleines, a silky caramel tart, or "Les Whoopie Pies," Dorie puts her own creative spin on each dish, guiding us with the friendly, reassuring directions that have won her legions of ardent fans.
Meet Julia Press Simmons, author, poet, playwright, and publisher. Julia is a dynamo! Faster than you can say ‘you can’t do it’ – she turns around and has it done! Author of Strawberry Mansion & Begonia Brown—A Philadelphia Story Julia says: I've spun tales for as long as I can remember—big ol' fat tales from my imagination. I was twelve years old when I began to write them down. Four years later, a couple of months after the birth of my son, I recognized my gift for what is was. Deep in the bowels of postpartum depression I penned my first poem entitled “Suicide.” I poured all of my hurt into verse, and when I was done the pain was gone. Since then I’ve received awards for my poetry, and I’ve had plays staged in Tennessee and New York, but nothing can compare to the overwhelming joy of “Strawberry Mansion,” my very first novel. Words can not express how grateful I am to everyone who has read it thus far, and for those who will read it in the future. Thank you all for helping to make my dream come true! Join us for a conversation about everything to do with writing and publishing!
