WW1 - Talented Americans
In this beautifully staged scene, American soldiers gather around the piano to listen to one of their comrades play. American involvement in the war was really secured via our banks. All of those loans to the allies had to be recovered. American business had made bank supplying those Allies. America entered late in the war and hardly entered the battlefield for long before the Armistice. It was the threat of American involvement, the threat of American supplies and the pure numbers game that was needed. This photo is from right before the Armistice in October of 1918 in Argonne, France.
