Voices in Bronze and Stone: Kansas City's World War I Monuments and Memorials [Heiman]


Voices in Bronze and Stone offers the reader first-hand awareness of Kansas City's experience of the Great War--from eye-witness reports on the home front to stirring accounts of heroism on the battlefield, in the air, and at sea. Grouped around descriptions of 19 different World War I monuments throughout the city, the 38 stories offered here give voice to the men and women who built and dedicated the monuments and the 440 men and one woman whose stories the monuments commemorate.

A tour guide to the monuments invites adults and young people to experience first-hand what their ancestors who fought the Great War continue to say.
