    They were the final survivors of the millions who made up the American Expeditionary Forces, nineteenth-century men and women living in the twenty-first century. Self-reliant, humble, and stoic, they kept their stories to themselves for a lifetime, then shared them at the last possible moment so that they, and the war they won - the trauma that created our modern world - might at last be remembered. You will never forget them.

    In The Last of the Doughboys, Richard Rubin introduced listeners to a forgotten generation of Americans: the men and women who fought and won the First World War. Interviewing the war's last survivors face-to-face, he knew well the importance of being present if you want to get the real story. But he soon came to realize that to get the whole story, he had to go Over There, too.

    A late entry in the Hollywood movie adaptation genre, Screen Directors' Playhouse stands out as one of the forgotten gems of radio's twilight years. The program aired on NBC for just two and a half years, but during that time the series impressed listeners with excellent scripts and casting decisions based more on radio aptitude than Hollywood star power. The result is a series that deserves a far wider audience than it ever received in its original broadcasts.
