On Wednesday, December 2nd @ 6:30P, the Cushing Public Library will host a
Zoom program, "Discovering the First World War's Eastern Front", presented
by Dr. Warren Riess, Research Associate Professor of History, Emeritus, at
the University of Maine.
In the spring of 1915, Dr. Riess' grandfather, Sgt Werner Riess, wrote an
intensely personal memoir of his five months service in the German field
artillery, fighting on the Eastern Front in Germany, Russia and Poland. Dr.
Riess inherited the memoir and researched the history of the Eastern Front.
He has translated, edited and published the memoir in 2020 as On the Eastern
Front 1914: Meine Kriegserinnerungen (My Memory of War).
