Pierpont Stackpole was a Boston lawyer who in January became aide to Lieutenant General Hunter Liggett, soon to be commander of the first American corps in France. Hunter Liggett did not fit John J. Liggett assumed leadership of the U. First Army in mid-October of , and after reorganizing, reinforcing, and resting, the battle-weary troops broke through the German lines in a fourth attack at the Meuse-Argonne—accomplishing what Pershing had failed to do in three previous attempts.
The victory paved the way to armistice on November Liggett has long been a shadowy figure in the development of the American high command. General Liggett built the American army in France, and the best measure of his achievement is this diary of his aide. That record stands here as a fascinating and authentic look at the Great War. About two o'clock in the morning Col. Heintzelman, chief of staff of the corps, came out and he was much pleased with what the division had accomplished and with the way they had gone through.
It was the division's first battle and it played a very important and creditable part.

Certain things fell down. The truth of the matter is the troops got away from the wire and it was impossible to keep the wire up through the tangle of barbed wire and woods. We captured 3, prisoners on our front alone and have lost When Martin Hogan began training on a vacant lot to be a soldier, he had no idea that he was about to become part of one of the most famed fighting units of World War I.
But soon he and other citizen soldiers from the Irish neighborhoods of New York City were locked in deadly combat with the German army. Few soldiers saw as much of the war in eighteen months as did young Martin Hogan, and in this stirring account he tells of his experiences with graphic power, humility, and humor. Hogan depicts World War I at its most human level, with memories of combat in the trenches and on blood-soaked battlefields at St.
Mihiel and in the Argonne Forest. His account tells us much about how unprepared for service the United States really was, with the National Guard woefully undersupplied and seriously undertrained.

His experiences as a gassed, then wounded, soldier also show the reader a side of war that was far from glorious—in a time before penicillin, when the dangers of gangrene ran high—and his memoir conveys rare insight about conditions in American military hospitals where he found care. William S.
Triplet was a seventeen-year-old junior in high school when, on April 2, , President Woodrow Wilson asked for a declaration of war. Passed by Congress and signed by the nation's chief executive four days later, this declaration stirred the superintendent of schools in Triplet's hometown of Sedalia, Missouri, to make an emotional plea to all eligible students to join the armed forces.
The appeal of military benefits—room and board, travel, adventure, and fifteen dollars a month, plus knowing he would receive his high school diploma—was too much for the young Triplet to pass up. Thus began William S. Triplet's remarkable career in the U. Army, in which he served until his retirement as a full colonel in In A Youth in the Meuse-Argonne, Triplet covers the early years of his service in Company D, th Infantry Regiment, 35th Division, from shortly after the time of his enlistment in to his honorable discharge in During those months he participated in several actions, most notably the battle of the Meuse-Argonne.
With both elegance and a touch of humor, he masterfully portrays the everyday life of the soldier, humanizing the men with whom he served. His vivid depictions of how soldiers fought give the reader a much clearer view of the terrifying experiences of combat. He also touches on the special problems he encountered as a sergeant with an infantry platoon composed of soldiers from many different walks of life.
