As part of West Point's centennial commemoration of World War I, Colonel Jason Musteen led cadets in a study of the history of WWI through literature, poetry and the memoirs of its soldiers. This included a trip to historical sites of the Western Front battlefields. Through these studies, the cadets placed themselves in the shoes of others who were often the same age as them and gained a deeper appreciation for the challenges of officership. COL Musteen explains the goals and conduct of these studies and uses experiences from the cadets and officers to highlight the value of immersive studies of history on-site.  

WestportREADS is funded by the estate of Jerry A. Tishman.
