Price: $15.95
2015 REVISION Lost and forgotten for over 90 years, this book is the result of one street-wise and peace-loving but fiercely patriotic American soldier who went well beyond the typical censored letters, pocket diaries, and post-war memoirs to help answer that question, “What was it like to be an American Doughboy?” Private Graham delivers one of the most compelling, detailed, and true real-time eyewitness accounts of an American soldier’s W.W. 1 experience ever recorded. Private Graham’s uncensored journal of over 650 hand-written pages was penned by him not from memory while resting comfortably by a war fire in a stuffed chair…but incredibly in France while the events he describes actually unfolded around him. Richly illustrated with over 350 rare original and previously unpublished images, this work gives an accurate and superbly detailed description of what many U.S. fighting men experienced “doing their bit” while struggling to survive...

    Finally, I understand what my grandfather experienced in the A.E.F. By Stephen A. Arteron Verified Purchase at Amazon. This book is awesome! The reader experiences what Private Graham saw in a way that I never believed possible before I read this first-hand account of day-to-day life for the American soldier in Europe during the First World War. My grandfather was a Doctor in the American Expeditionary Forces and commanded Field Hospital 92 in France during 1918. Since he died when I was only 10 months old, I never realized or appreciated what he experienced until I read this fascinating account by Private Graham. Learning what Private Graham endured during the war made me realize what the word "hero" really means. I commend C. Stephen Badgley and Author Bruce A. Jarvis for taking the time and effort to publish Private Graham's fabulous manuscript. Your contribution to the understanding of America's role in the Great War is immeasurable. Historians and history buffs alike... More > are deeply indebted to you. A masterpiece, gentlemen! 5 out of 5 stars. What Was Grandfather's Experience In The First World War? By Doug Fisher "History Buff" Verified Purchase at Amazon An extremely readable first hand account of an American soldier's view of a period in history that is getting lots more attention with the 100th anniversary of this horrible war. The soldier was a mature and discerning M.P. working close to the front which gave him a broad view of daily military action. The authors have included many interesting photographs throughout the book that help bring everything to life for today's reader. The print format is large, 8.5" x 11", which really helps display the photos. I particularly recommend the book for American readers who are interested in knowing what almost 2 million of their grandfathers experienced in France. 5 out of 5 stars.< Less
