Mike Neiberg, member of the International Society for First World War Studies, discusses the Centenary of the First World War in America.

Mr. Neiberg discusses a sense of apathy towards the Centenary in America, citing examples such "two different American publishers have recently told me that they... do not want to sign World War I books... they were worried that general American indifference toward the war would lead to poor sales".

Mr. Neiberg also discusses the recent international World War One Centenary conference held in Kansas City, USA, which he attended, alongside Centenary News' Editor.
