On this week’s Dispatches, host Brady Crytzer interviews JAR contributor, writer, and historian Norman Desmarais on the Gazette Françoise, a French newspaper published for French soldiers, begun soon after their arrival in Newport, Rhode Island. This is the first known service newspaper published by an expeditionary force.
New episodes of Dispatches are available for free every Saturday evening (Eastern United States Time) on iTunes, Stitcher, Google Play, and the JAR Dispatches web site. Dispatches can now be easily accessed on the JAR main menu.

As your host Brady Crytzer says, “Sit back, relax, and enjoy our interview. . . .”
