Title and Cover: The Yanks Are Starving – Cover beautifully depicts historical scene
The Yanks are Starving is a masterfully written saga of pre and post World War 1. Glen Craney explores the lack of loyalty of officers in battle for their troops and government’s abandonment of the welfare of the troops who fight for their country. Herbert Hoover fought brilliantly for food for the pre-war citizens of France and Belgium but abandoned our own veterans during the great depression. This rather lengthy but insightful book explores the lives of eight individuals from wildly differing experiences and backgrounds whose clash in July 1932 culminates in a poignant and sad story of American history.
