April 6 marks the 100th Anniversary of the U.S. entry into WWI. Standing side by side, the U.S. and the UK have fought together in nearly every war since WWI. More than two million American soldiers, or Doughboys as they were known, served in Europe during the war. In commemoration, on April 6 2017 the U.S. Embassy is launching an extensive program of events across the country.
Fields of Battle, Lands of Peace: The Doughboys 1917-1918 is the latest in an acclaimed series of centenary photographic exhibitions, created by Michael St Maur Sheil, to document the battlefields of the First World War as they are today.
The photographs are on display outside the U.S. Embassy in London at Grosvenor Square from April 29 – May 11 2017.
