I Invented the Modern Age

praise for

I Invented the Modern Age is the amazing story of an amazing man, told with wit, insight, style, and zest. Richard Snow makes the invention of the automobile intelligible and fascinating even to car ignoramuses such as myself. His story of the man is simply riveting. This is history as it should always be told. — Kevin Baker, author of Striver’s Row

A Measureless Peril

“Richard Snow captures the sweep of battle--years long, thousands of square miles in extent--and its life-sized, daily events, from routine tasks to hellish violence, as seen through the eyes of the men who were there. The result is a stereoscopic view of a world-historical struggle, and of the author's father, Lieut. Richard B. Snow, USNR, a representative member of the greatest generation.”
