Soissons, 1918 icon
"'It is the last five percent of possible exertion that often wins the battle.' Brigadier Gen. Hanson Ely's statement best exemplifies the efforts of his troops as part of the allied contingent at the Battle of Soissons, July 18-22, 1918. At a cost of more than twelve thousand soldiers and marines dead, wounded, and missing, American troops struck the Germans with such force that the Germans lost the initiative for the remainder of the war.

"Soissons, 1918 provides an intricately detailed account of this pivotal battle in which partly trained, inexperienced American soldiers and marines literally turned the tide of the war. Despite strange French command methods, alien equipment (such as masses of tanks), immature American staff work, and difficulties in communicating with advancing troops, American enthusiasm and willingness "to finish the job" briefly shattered German defenses, caused panic, and ultimately unhinged the Germans' carefully prepared strategic plans."

For My Foot Being Off: A Narrative in Documents and Letters Relating to the WWI Experiences of Infantry Lieutenant Alfred Barlow
"Perceptions of the First World War usually come through words written long after the conflict ended. We see the war through time's broader pictures. Rarely do we see the war as it was presented to those involved. Though we can place the war within historical perspectives, most of what we find does little to aid the seeker of an approximation of the direct experience of that war. Fiction can, but only subjectively and at its own deliberate removes. Sometimes neither histories nor fictions provide satisfactory understanding to those seeking to comprehend even a small part of such monumental disasters as the First World War. Through documents, newspaper articles, and letters from a soldier, For My Foot Being Off attempts to provide a little of that satisfaction."

American Aces of World War I icon
"American fliers arriving in Europe from September 1917 brought with them no aircraft. Instead, US units had to obtain machines mainly from the British and French. From early 1918 American pilots were issued with SPAD fighters and they never looked back. As this volume details, the first American trained pilot to become an ace was Lt Douglas Campbell, who shot down five German aircraft by the end of May 1918. He was a member of the celebrated 94th 'Hat in the Ring' Aero Squadron, which created the bulk of American aces in World War I."
