Generations of Americans born since 1918 scarcely remember or appreciate what their fathers, grandfathers and great-grandfathers experienced in France during WWI. Knowledge of the battles, the battlegrounds, and the American participation in that war is no longer in our national memory. It is a sad commentary that “the war to end all wars” has been relegated to the dustbin of history less than a century after the final shots were fired. During World War I, almost five million Americans wore the uniform of their country; two million soldiers went overseas, and 116,708 of them gave their lives—53,513 in combat action and another 63,195 from disease and other non-hostile causes.
This volume is dedicated to all of the American soldiers, sailors and marines who fought so valiantly on land and sea and in the air during the greatest struggle for liberty in the history of the world prior to 1914. “Lest We Forget,” this book is written with a determination that “time will not dim the glory of the deeds.” As such, it is a labor of gratitude and respect for those who served so well.
