Overview
1919. With an historical appendix by Joyce Kilmer. From the Preface: Battles are not fought by commanding officers alone, not even by chaplains unaided; and the men who do the fighting usually get little personal credit for their valor. My chronicle claims no merit save that of being true. The only critics I had in mind while writing it were those who fought in France. If they say that the pictures are true, I am content. The diary style has been deliberately chosen because it permits the introduction of incidents, and also lends itself to the telling a plain unvarnished tale. Contents: Preparations at Home; In Training Abroad; The Luneville Sector; The Baccarat Sector; The Champagne Defensive; The Battle of the Ourcq; After the Battle; The St. Mihiel Offensive; The Argonne Offensive; and With the Army of Occupation.
