Présentation de l'éditeur
A Doughboy Named Walt Disney
Walt Disney embarked upon his first great adventure when he joined the Red Cross and was shipped out to war-torn France, where he had his first drink, drew some of his first cartoons, and narrowly avoided court-martial. It was a coming of age for an under-aged Walt.
With World War I raging in Europe, Walt wanted to follow in the footsteps of his older brother Roy and enlist. But he was too young. The Red Cross needed drivers and wasn't so picky about age. With his mother's permission, and a clever forgery, Walt became a driver for the Red Cross in France, an experience that closed his childhood and put him on the road to the man he would become.
In David Lesjak's engagingly written, extensively researched "In the Service of the Red Cross", you'll learn about this little-known time in Walt Disney's life:
- Walt's unlikely friendships with a German POW and a Georgia redneck
- Walt's close call with a court-martial after he "lost" a truck filled with essential supplies
- Walt's lifelong friendship with Alice Howell, a spinster who ran a canteen in France and became young Walt's mentor
- Walt's formative months in France as a budding cartoonist and businessman, selling sketchy souvenirs to gullible American troops
With over 50 PHOTOS, many of them never seen before.
It’s a side of Walt you’ve never seen, before Mickey, before the fame, when he was just a doughboy named Walt Disney.

Walt's time with the Red Cross at the end of World War I has often been glossed over in other books, but is a very crucial chapter in the formation of the man who would become the Walt Disney we know and love. Author David Lesjak has done meticulous research and uncovered letters and back story previously unknown to this Disney reader. And, it doesn't end there, we also get to see photos never before published showing Walt actually there, along with drawings he had sent home. This material only adds to the story placing the reader on the scene with Walt on his first trip away from home.
