The Inter-Allied Games

In this episode I trace the history of the Inter-Allied games, an international athletic competition that took place in France from June 22 – July 6, 1919. I focus on the participation of the U.S. team in the event’s soccer tournament and examine some of the effects it had on the growth of the sport in the United States during the 1920s.
